At 10:30 this morning…I was laid off from Stardock, along with many other people from all across the company.
Elemental shipped ten days ago. That’s how disastrous this has been for Stardock.
Ouch… sorry to hear that 🙁
I’ve read the posts in the forums about how bad it all went down… and i’m sure that is only a drop of everything
Wish you all the best and good luck in finding something new soon!
My condolences, hope you find something soon.
Sorry to hear about recent events, just read Brad’s announcement. Wish you all the best for finding new horizons. Have you considered non-gaming consultancy for a while? we’ve had a couple of software consultants in ( i work in academia ) and they seem to have a varied amount of projects, good pay etc. Does mean a lot of travelling ( which some people love ). Anyway, best wishes and hope you find something new and rewarding soon.
This is just… wrong. I’m sorry.
That totally sucks. Just. totally. Sucks.
Do you have an idea where you will go next? Back to Austin?
I have a really good industry recruiter who found me my last two gamedev jobs – if you like I could pass along his contact info. Also, there seems to be a good amount of hiring out in the Seattle area.
Well, one nice thing about coming to Michigan is that there is allot of defense jobs available here. Many of them have simulation departments and make training products. These products are very often referred to as “Serious Games”. If your interested, I’ll point you to some contacts.
Did Elemental HAVE to ship? Do you think this will kill Stardock, or Impulse for that matter?
Shit happens, but it’s gonna be fine. It always does! Cheer up 🙂
