David Perry Interview

David Perry Interview

Recently, Managing Editor Jon Wood had the opportunity to ask a few questions of David Perry, the Director of Acclaim's Top Secret project.

For those people who might not know, can you give us an overview of how exactly the Top Secret project actually works?

David Perry:

Well the goal was to offer the chance for ANYONE to join a real professional fully-funded video game development team, that already has a publishing contract with Acclaim Games. I love working with students and do my best to help them get their foot in the door. In this situation, they can join me on a project, then the most impressive one will be given the directorship of an Acclaim MMO. No "working your way up the ladder over X years", they will go from bedroom to Game Director / Design Director in one swift move. For the others, they get a resume credit and they're also are being watched by headhunters eager to find them jobs. I've personally hired two people so far (without resume) based entirely on how talented they were.

This whole experience has already changed my opinion that it's not about the resume, it's about the individual that shows up.
