Well, I'm finally in the games industry.
I've taken a job programming for Sidhe, New Zealand's largest games development company. They're based in Wellington, and I'm in the middle of relocating.
All I know at this stage is that I'm programming, I don't yet know the kind of project I'll be working on, or which areas I'll be involved in (i.e. tools, graphics, network, AI, and so on)
I've been at Clearfield for 3 years, and while it's a superb environment for programmers, it wasn't getting me any closer to writing games for a living. I love games, and I've always been keen to see inside "The Sausage Factory", as Phil Steinmeyer puts it.
