MMORPG has posted a long interview with PotBS producer Scott Tynes. The interview covers Scott's background as a developer and his role in Pirates of the Burning Sea. Here's a snip:
MMORPG.com: What does a Producer do on an MMO? What are your responsibilities as a Producer?
John Tynes: I'm sure it's different from company to company but here, my main job is managing the nuts and bolts of production. Every day I'm checking out the new stuff going into the game, tracking down problems we aren't addressing, and helping our awesome staff when they get blocked or need some cross-team coordination. I also triage all the new bugs that come from QA, build the list of major work items for each milestone, and talk frequently with our publishing partners at SOE about marketing, distribution, and technology issues.
It's a great job. I love being able to get involved in every aspect of the game and see good ideas blossom into great ones.
