Hi! My name is Jeremy Huxley, I have been in the industry for 6 years now and it has taken me all over the world. I am an environment artist here at Runic and I have been here since the beginning of May. I have greatly enjoyed my time here. Everyone is really busy, but we have accomplished so much in a short amount of time. We are on the final push to release the single player in less than a year of production, that’s amazing!
During my time in the games industry, I have worked for a lot of different studios, including Flagship Studios in San Francisco, so a lot of these guys are friends. It is great to work directly with these guys for the first time, other than Max and Erich who were also down south, and Adam whom I grew up with in a tiny town –this is what we always dreamed of doing.
Bottle-necks in production are very common in this industry, where some of the people will work very hard on something and then once its passed on it can stagnate or disappear completely, there are millions of factors that lead to this, even when people all have good intentions. Personally, I have never worked at a studio where everyone works as diligently and cares so much about the project as they do here at Runic, and Travis and the programmers put us all to shame. In parting I would like to say that we hope you really enjoy the game, I feel it truly has heart and I hope you are all planning up your Mods and TC’s for the game, I know I am!
