I’m sure many of you are wondering what I’ve been working on at my real job. I’ve told a few people with little to no understanding on their part due to the fact that the games are so different from what the names imply. Well, I did some searching online and found images of the games.
I am 95% done coding Monopoly and Sorry. I am now waiting on the designers to get me the rest of the assets (such as the animations and graphics) so I can complete and polish the product before we give it off to be shown to the world.
These games have been announced a while ago so I’m ok in talking about them. We are always getting in new products that are pre-release. The companies that send them to us don’t want us showing them off before they have announced them, so sometimes I can’t really talk about it. It’s kind of like working for Apple again where we would sometimes get marketing information a few days prior to Apple announcing promotions and we were suppose to keep it to ourselves until they officially announced it.
Our office looks like a day care center sometimes with all these toys on people’s desk. It’s a lot of fun to see what the next toy we get in will be. It’s kind of like that movie “Big” where Tom Hanks’ character gets a job as a toy tester.
