Alright well he's not so wild, but he is awesome. His name is Ben, and he's the newest member of the Clever Endeavour Games team!
Ben has come on board to help us finish off the last of the bugs in UCH, and to help implement new features such as the Sandbox mode and other secret things we can't tell you about yet. He'll be with us full-time, so he'll help with console ports and with future projects as well.
We're really excited to add him to the mix, and we're sure that we'll be able to get more done once he's all settled in and familiar with the game code. At the time of writing, he's only been here for two days and it's already happening... so :)
As you may or may not know, he's our first full-time employee, apart from the three co-founders of the company (Rich, Kyler and Alex). It's an exciting time for us as we begin our expansion. We plan to stay small and not scale faster than we can handle... scaling improperly can kill startups and we're making sure to be careful of that.
Our goal is to stay as flat as possible and empower our employee(s) to contribute as much as the co-founders do, encouraged by the fact that they'll be treated as equals and not as minions. Eventually, there will be a point where the flatness will be questioned and we'll need to evolve in terms of our roles and responsibilities, but we're not there yet.
For now, we're still working on this game and getting it to be as good as possible, and like we've said before, it's approaching what we had in mind when we started designing the game :)
