Inangelion Posted March 22, 2005 Share Posted March 22, 2005 Hello everyone, I'm an aspiring game programmer currently studying in Full Sail. I was curious about what Obsidian menagement was thinking about the current quality of life issues that make many game programmers suffer. Many large game development companies are threating their emloyees very badly nowadays. Many programmers are required to work extra hours and not get paid for it. Certain companies are pointed out specifially (one hint: Starts with an 'E', end with 'A'). I agree that extreme crunch time (80+ hours per week) is indeed a necessity sometimes during the development cycle but I don't think any programmer is happy about not being paid. These companies don't really care about their employees since they are recieving dozens of resumes per week and see them as replaceble. I have always admired Obsidian Entertainment as a company (well, I admired Black Isle before Obsidian) and I would really appreciate if someone inside the company gives some feedback on how Obsidian is dealing with these issues. Thank you for reading this. PS: I don't really know about Obsidian's policies. If answering this question will get you in any kind of trouble, feel free to erase this topic.
