Job hunt now in full swing!

Okay, here goes. I fired out a bunch of emails today to a bunch of local game companies I'd like to work for, plus some that I know that are hiring, plus one long shot, Naughty Dog. It's a long shot, since I'd have to convince them to help relocate me to California, but their Twitter said they had positions available, so I thought I'd give it a try.

So, wish me luck!

Boston Postmortem - March 09

Just got back from this month's Boston Postmortem. A good time, as usual. Got to see a lot of the people I know from 38 Studios, as a whole bunch of them were there supporting Jamie Gotch, the guy who created Fieldrunners, a tower defense style game for the iPhone. He gave a postmortem about his game, which I guess was the first iPhone postmortem done at the BPM. And, as an added bonus, they organized a raffle and everyone had a chance to win one of 10 "copies" (as in, a code to redeem for a free download) of Fieldrunners. And I happened to win one!

Now, all I need is an iPhone. :)

Saw some other familiar faces, as in the usual WPI people, and a couple of guys from my group from the Global Game Jam. Not as many announcements concerning job opportunities as there were last time, and therefore not as many business card I got to give away. But, I still have enough names and places from the last couple BPMs that I've been to, so I've got a good start. Which I will have to really start soon!
