I always enjoy a little insight into game creation. When I first arrived here I read every devs portfolio on Gearboxity, just to see if they had left any pearls of wisdom about games making, and some of them did. So I love it when devs talk about their jobs and what inspires them and such. Very good read.

Interesting read.

Can't help wondering what that freelance flash game was like though.

I feel like UI is an overlooked art form in games so its great to see Gearbox giving some of their UI artists some time in the lime light.

Most likely, Brad submitted an application / resume and Gearbox called to ask him for an interview.

oh ok, that makes more sense first it sounded like he got called without ever having had contact with gearbox lol, which would be rather odd ^^

thank for the info and do more of these, question more people over @ gearbox, including yourself
they are good reads and show ppl what to expect
