Gods & Heroes Week: Day 5

Gods & Heroes Week: Day 5 - MMORPG.com

Today we are featuring our final article in our exclusive "Gods & Heroes Week".  This time we are taking a look at the men and women behind the game.  A preview below:

For our final feature this week on Gods and Heroes we're taking a look at Perpetual Entertainment's development team. The list of designers and artists reads like a who's who of the game development world. Some are veterans from an earlier, simpler time in the gaming industry when the major form of gaming included your favorite pen and a set of dice. Others are from the new age of gaming, when a major evolution took place and a thing called the Internet changed the way people would game forever.

Perpetual's team of heavy hitters starts with their lead designer Stieg Hedlund, of Diablo II fame. Mr. Hedlund tells us that he originally started out as a teenager playing pen-and-paper RPGs. He began his career in games at Infinity Software in 1987, and continued to work for some of the most prestigious companies in the industry including Electronic Arts (EA), Konami, SEGA and Blizzard. He has designed games of nearly every genre for a wide variety of computers, consoles, and arcade machines. In addition to being the lead designer of Diablo II, which sold more than 5 million units and received many of the industry's most prestigious awards, he also worked on some of Blizzard's other huge hits including Diablo, StarCraft, and the Diablo II: Lord of Destruction expansion pack. He has successfully shipped over 30 titles.

We would like to thank the development team for helping us bring all of this great information about Gods and Heroes to our fine community here at MMORPG.com.  It was a lot of fun and we learned a lot about this MMORPG.  We look forward to watching its evolution!
