Guess I didn't botch it so bad after all...

On the 10th of January, I started working at Surreal Software as a tools engineer. Pretty cool place, great people, high stressload, not much free time at the moment - thus the lack of blog postings.

I guess I didn't botch it so bad after all :)

Surreal is probably best known for the recent game The Suffering, which is a survival/action/horror game in the same vein as the Silent Hill games.

It's good to be here. All I need to do now is figure out how to fit going to the gym for 2 hours a day in with actually sleeping, eating, and going to work and still having time to wind down afterwards. Guess it doesn't help that I started right around a major crunch.

The gym is a place of evil and depravity, where people torture themselves with boredom and bad music. Mention it not!

So do you still pass through the UK these days? Wouldn’t mind meeting up for a beer some time if you do.

Still working at lightwork design.
