A little over Three years ago Marweas and I hatched a devious plan to bring the Tribes Franchise back from the dead. With the help of the community and Garage games we patched T2; we finished Tribes: Aerial Assault which had languished under eight previous producers; and we kicked off Tribes: Vengeance.

A little time line for you:
  • November 2001 - Marweas announces our intention to make a T2 patch. The negotiations mentioned were of course with Garage Games.
  • January, 2002 - Irrational signs on to make what was then called Tribes: Story.
  • December, 2002 - Marweas poetically informs TW that the game has made it past the last green-light hurdle and is in full production (his announcement is several months late).
  • February, 2004 - Marweas is laid off. 692 posts of 99.9% pure love. Time to meet the new guy.
  • April, 2004 - Luc Vanhal leaves VUG. It's only worth 59 replies on TW.
  • April, 2004 - VGB Scr8pin - 121 posts. Scr8pin > Luc Vanhal.
  • June, 2004 - Vivendi announces more layoffs and the closure of the Sierra studios (where I work). My first meaningful post (few and far between) comes on page 5 (#84).
  • August, 2004 - Open beta released. Many people enjoy it. Pocketgamer develops a fixation on hopping vs sliding.
  • Tomorrow, Friday September 17 - Just a few short weeks before Tribes will hit the shelves my time has run out. I was given a 90 day extension to stay on at Sierra (the building has been nearly empty for a month now) and finish Tribes. We're now in a great position, ready to ship, and I'm confident that the team in Australia will do a fantastic job finishing the game.

It's been a pleasure. I'm tired. I need a rest. As a member of Sierra and the Tribes Development team, goodbye.

2nd.

Edit: I forgot to mention that there will (obviously) be somebody replacing me. If he's smart he'll never post here, if he does post here, treat him better than you treated Scr8pin. Remember that he (and there is no way I'm giving up his name) and Menzo will be your greatest allies within VU Games. Don't squander those resources. Cultivate them.

You can't quit.. WE OWN YOU!

So where does a hip (so hip I can't see past my own pelvis) Seattlelite like myself go to apply for a job with Sierra/VU? : )

Will do, but he'll have to work pretty hard to be a good replacement of yours...
