My software history (part 4)
Wed 29th April 2015
Welcome to the fourth (and last) part of this series of articles.
The previous part was about Eden Games, this new one covers the period from when I moved from France to Norway in 2005 to join Funcom.
This article is a bit different from the others, because I am still working at Funcom. All the content of course represents my personal views, other people may disagree :)
Five years in Norway
Sat 1st May 2010
Celebration time!Yes! I arrived in Norway the 2nd of May 2005, so this Sunday marks my five years anniversary in Norway. I think it's about time to do a quick look back, and possibly discuss what I can see coming next.
Some people asked me why I moved to Norway in first place: was I unhappy in France, why not moving to USA or UK, if I was planning to come back to France one day - and when -, etc, etc...
What happened to the story line
Tue 13th April 2010
Recently I finished a number of games, of the types that are supposed to be bundled with a story in it: Fallout 3, Dragon Age, Mass Effect 2 and yesterday I finished Dreamfall.
Dreamfall as a game is probably not perfect, if only because it was originally a Xbox game, so some of the textures are a bit wonky, the controls on PC could have been better (damn you camera!), there's a bit too many fed-ex missions, and the fight sequences could have been more interesting... but as an engaging story, it's ace: You could watch it as a movie.
