    Hey Guys,

    Just a quick note that I have applied for a job with Irrational Games in Canberra (they are making the new Tribes game!). Just an entry level position, and it will mean a pretty big pay cut if I get it.

    Wish me luck

    WiB

    Best of luck mate! What position have you applied for (just generally, such as programmer, tester, etc).

    How did you find out about it?

    hey what a dream move....I'd love to be involved in designing games (am Industrial Designer anyway) but I couldn't suffer the pay cut....children and TLO are so expensive.

    Come on, get the job, then we can pester you to put special features into the game (and some TOG easter eggs :) )

    Tribes2 is my all time fab game :)

    thanks guys. Read an interview with the head devs, and looked up their webpage, which had a job listed. Just an entry level tester/IT support guy.

    I probably won't hear anything, but it's worth a go

    Irrational Games - aren't they the mob that worked on Freedom Force?

    Good luck with the application, WiB.

    Just out of curiosity, what kind of work do you do at the moment?

    Yeah they did Freedom Force. I'm a Unix/Win/VMS sys admin. Not quite a games designer, but the job did say entry level (coffee making, that sort of thing)

    Hehe, more like:

    "Hey WiB, you old fart, go bring that new texture over here"

    "Sheesh, you cluster fruck, that's not a polygon, this is a polygon"

    and the ol' time favourite:

    "WiB!, I want this network code re-written by the morning or it's YOUR job!"

    I found the best luck in finding a job was through a advert in the local paper, using the agencies never got me anywhere ;o/
