Stargate Worlds Dev Journal

Stargate Worlds Dev Journal

Another new Developer Journal has popped up over at Cheyenne Mountain Entertianment, the company responsible for the development of the new MMORPG, Stargate Worlds:


"Well, I'm Mike Whiting, and I am one of the game artists for Cheyenne Mountain Entertainment. I'm 25 years old, and my wife just had our second baby in December of 2005. I have been playing video games since I was in Kindergarten, when my best friend got an NES console for his birthday, and I haven't stopped since really. I just started the online gaming scene last year with Diablo II (battlenet) and then I jumped into MMORPG's last year with World of Warcraft.

"I am a really big sports fan, and also an avid follower of the Phoenix Suns. I played varsity volleyball for my high school for 2 years, which is also my favorite sport. I had a few opportunities to play some college ball, but chose to go on a service mission for my church, and ended up living in Spain for 2 years. When I got back from Europe in 2002, I dated a girl I knew from high school and we ended up getting married in 2003. She basically couldn't resist me.

"I also really enjoy music, and I started playing the guitar my sophomore year in high school - I have a black Epiphone Les Paul that I try and play as often as I can. My favorite music is punk rock, and my favorite band is probably Lagwagon. I have a million close 2nd places though.

"I also absolutely love movies. Several summers ago, I had a record 42 rentals from Blockbuster in one month. My wife also really enjoys movies and we watch them whenever we can. We also like to watch Friends together, and we are on our 3rd time through all 10 season.

"As an artist, I have been drawing my whole life. I got into computer art about 3 years ago, and I enjoy it just as much as traditional art. I really love being a game artist here at Cheyenne Mountain, it is an awesome company!"
