George Menhal III's Blog

 

I am currently completing my undergraduate education, expecting to earn a bachelor's in Information Technology by December 2015.  I have two-and-a-half years of professional programming experience to my credit, building business applications both internally and as a consultant for large corporations.

My dream is to design and develop video games or otherwise highly interactive software for a living.  Currently, I am developing a project using Unreal Engine 4 and Oculus Development Kit 2.  My goal is to release a free VR experience through the Oculus platform store upon release of the consumer device.  I have a background in creative writing and programming, but I am happiest when asserting myself as a game designer.

I enjoy the autonomy and creative freedom of working on my own, but I would love to see my work amplified by a wonderful team of talented individuals who care about the medium as much as I do.  Always seeking a proper role within the industry beyond my own independent development efforts, I am willing to travel, relocate, and crunch!  I am not tied down to any one location, nor am I preoccupied with a significant family life.  Please be sure to contact me either here on Gamasutra or connect with me through LinkedIn if you would like to speak with me about career opportunities!

Although I am not actively seeking employment at this time, I will seriously consider any offer either within the video game industry or based out of the greater Los Angeles area.  Due to my career aspirations and laid-back personality, I am convinced that L.A. is the perfect place for me!

FF XV needs to be released for PC. Besides Sony 's exclusive games, the only thing I ever play on PS consoles are JRPG games that are never released for PC. As a matter of fact, JRPGs are the best reason to own a Sony or MS console. In the ...

I 'm very happy that Oculus will be its own platform with its own store.

Negative work environments are somewhat of a sad standard when you 're working as a programmer. Lots of unnecessary pissing contests and political power struggles, and often not enough collaboration or mutual support. HR and management sometimes fuels this fire by incentivizing a dog-eat-dog approach to development that causes the ...

I always make time to check out Jonathan Blow 's talks and public presentations. For some it may seem like he is occasionally off-topic, but I think he 's got an amazing amount of great advice. I appreciate the fact that he takes time out to give his insights back ...

Damn 2.5 billion. Congrats to Notch. What a bizarre success story this has turned out to be. r n r nWith Notch and the co-founders moving on, though, I feel Microsoft owns Mojang in name only. The creative drive just left with the insane paycheck.
