In this GDC 2018 talk, PUBG Corp's Brendan "PLAYERUNKNOWN" Greene shares his history in games, mod making, and the path he took to become creative director at PUBG Corp.
Greene discusses his humble beginnings starting with making a mod for the Arma series to developing the huge success of his game-mode in H1Z1.
He also goes over the lessons learned during his transition from being a person who makes things to a person who directs people after joining the PUBG development team, and some of the recent lessons after the launch of PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds.
