Epic Game Recruitment Ad

Posted by Rampant Coyote on August 1, 2012

Okay, yeah, two days in a row linking to videos. But this one is worthy of note, if you haven’t seen it already. I’ve never heard of this game company before, but their recruiting video is pretty hysterical. Two words of caution: The language (and logo for one company) is not exactly family friendly and may not be safe for work, and I really hope nobody takes it too seriously.

Juvenile? Yeah. But fun? Yeah, and that’s the point, right?

But really, there’s a part of me that really looks at the video and says, “None of the above, please…” I guess that’s why I’m indie now.  I came to this profession / hobby / industry because I loved video games. My favorites were not necessarily the games that were the monster mind-blowing hits, either. Sure, it was fun being a part of some big, hit games back in the day – back when selling a million copies was a “hit” and it could be done with a team of a dozen people. Nowadays… well, let’s just say I think all that passion is usually wasted when a team grows much larger than that.

But hey, at least they can make really cool recruiting videos…

    According to the video comments, they make the same kinds of games they try to ridicule in the video 😛

    (i can’t confirm that though since their site doesn’t load here)

    Awesome vid, cool web site, but yeah, they don’t make any particularly great games… Maybe because they spend all their dev time making recruitment vids and making the web site cool. =P

    I’m not subtle enough to see the difference between Janka and Kixeye.
