Now that I've finished my time on Red Faction: Armageddon, I'm taking some much needed down time to recover and get ready for my first Design Director position. But, I've found that there are a lot of other transitions that are happening in my life as well.
I recently moved my desk to the new team location and have found that since the room is pretty quiet...it seems to inspire a lot of impromptu conversations from people walking by. I'm currently trying to get myself acclimated with the new game, so my days aren't too stressful.
The bigger transition is happening after hours since we've decided to move into a bigger place. We recently signed a lease on a duplex that doubles our living space and we are busy moving things over gradually. I'm also hard at work designing the Game Design Course I mentioned before, so free time is something I have very little of these days.
I'm also heading to Dublin in a couple of weeks to show Armageddon to European press. My wife isn't happy, since her family is from Ireland and she's been dying to go. So, I told her at least this will allow me to get to know the area and prepare a bit for when we do get a chance to go as a family. (Think it helped?)
Anyway, things are super busy but I'll do my best to get some blogging done soon!
