You are already devoted to the game and know every bit of it? Now we think it is time that you get to know the team a little better and this is why from now on, we will present you one of our Developers every week.
What’s the story of the tag?
I used to be a passionate MMORPG player (aside from my love to strategy games) and usually played an archer character, so I thought the “bow” was also fitting for my nickname in the gaming industry. The color only refers to the natural environment color of archers: the green forest.
What is your position and what does that mean?
As QA Assistant, I assist Reto.Splixxen with hunting for the most devious and nefarious bugs!
What was the best thing to work on so far?
I love to dig out nifty bugs in the strategy part of the game and find complex reproduction methods. Especially the work on the “Battle Director” (the system that decides if a battle is “fun” on the War-map) was great.
What are you excited about in the future?
Creating more awesome tools to speed up the test process.
What did you do before Reto?
I worked on Microsoft Flight Simulator ages ago, but in general I’m coming from a different branch of the IT business.
What is the best thing about working at Reto?
Having the opportunity to work on a game that I got to know from playing it in earlier stages feels like helping Santa Claus to prepare your Christmas presents 🙂
What is your favourite thing about H&G?
The combination of RTS and FPS gameplay makes it really unique. I like the idea of fighting for “a higher goal” when playing shooter games.
What are your hobbies?
I can’t think of anything specific that I would call “my hobby”, but I like various activities. That begins with reading books, playing board games, chatting with friends etc. and ends at playing challenging computer games.
Favourite Games/Games that inspired you to have a career in games?
BF2, Sim City, C&C – and of course: H&G
What are your favourite films
2001 A Space Odyssey, Gladiator, The Great Dictator, Pi, Southland Tales to name a few
Random Fun Fact about you
I was late for my job interview at Reto.Moto because I couldn’t find the building even though I walked around the block like five times.
