I got out of testing, and I'm a Game Designer now. I credit this place as where it all started.
In a lot of the games industry, that means getting laid off every few years and having to move a lot. A great deal of uncertainty.
That's why it's really great to work at Epic! I don't have to deal with any of that! While my coworkers are busy with Fortnite, I've been working on Spyjinx, which has been announced and then we haven't said much. It's good work, I'm mostly doing visual scripting and putting together levels, even though I started out here with art. Going from finding bugs to making and fixing bugs has been a trip.
For home life, I got married last year, which was great. We'd been living together for a while now. Still have the 2 cats, who I should post in the pets thread. No kids so I can still play lots of video games.
