TenTonHammer released a new Developer Journal by Anarchy Online's writer Nina "Aythem" Sund, who introduced her role in creating the contents and stories of Rubi-Ka and more:
My name is Nina and I have been given the opportunity to write an ongoing developer journal for Ten Ton Hammer. Why did I decide to jot down my thoughts, you ask? I work for the Norwegian game company Funcom and through my updates here on this site, I want to give you a little insight into our life in the game industry.
Let's begin with some background. I am one of the quest designers for Anarchy Online. That means I get to come up with ways for our players to discover the world and gain experience, rewards and learn more about the continuing story of the game and finding ingenious ways to test, challenge and otherwise torture players!
So how did I end up here with such power at my hands? I've been here for two and a half years and started out in Quality Assurance before moving on to become a designer. It's been a bit of a longer journey getting here though. Five years ago, I would never have imagined I would do this for a living. Like many of the people who work here, I started out as a player. The funny thing is that Anarchy Online is the first MMO I ever played, way back in 2002. Now, a few years later, I am lucky enough to work on the continued development of the very same game that got me interested in the game industry in the first place, and I positively love my job!
