It has been exactly six months and one day since I abruptly and inexplicably retired from game design after thirteen years at Bungie Studios (creators of Halo, Halo 2, Halo 3, Halo: ODST and Halo: Reach.) And now, after precisely six months of spending time with my family, traveling the globe and watching daytime television… it’s time for me to get back to making games!
At some point I’ll talk about my new gig, but first I want to thank all of you readers for your engagement and encouragement over the last half-year. Writing about game design for publication has been something I have always wanted to try, and I’ve enjoyed it immensely. I do intend to keep posting — I have explicit permission from my new employer to do so — but it will probably not be with the same frequency and regularity. Especially not at first, since I have a lot to learn and I’m already quite busy. Again, thanks so much for reading — it’s great to be a professional game designer again!
PS I’ll probably be using @tipofthesphere more frequently and I’ll be sure to mention new posts in the feed.
