Update #14

Mini Update: Meet The Team - Robert Megone

Hi guys, it's time for another mini update. We are delighted to introduce you to another member of our team: Robert Megone, one of our implementers!

Could you introduce yourself to us?
Hi, I'm Robert Megone. I'm an adventure game fanatic.

What do you do at Revolution?
I've been working with Revolution for a couple of years now. When I started work with Revolution I was fulfilling a lifelong ambition, to work with the legends that defined my childhood gaming experiences. Originally I started working as a beta tester on the iOS versions of Beneath a Steel Sky and the two Broken Sword games. I also took on website and customer service roles. I am currently working as an Implementer on Broken Sword - the Serpent's Curse. This role involves scripting. I work closely with the designers and the programmers to ensure that the player experience is always enjoyable! It's a massive honour to be part of something as fantastic as a new Broken Sword game.

When did you discover Broken Sword?
I played Broken Sword on my 486 computer, back in the day! At the time I was just discovering my love of adventure games, so it was a real breath of fresh air to play a beautiful game like Broken Sword. The puzzles and story charmed me and really re-enforced my childhood dream to start making these games.

What is your fondest memory of Broken Sword?
I got the game for my birthday, but was frustrated because the school holidays were over. I remember coming home in the afternoons to try and solve the puzzles I had spent the day thinking about. For me, my fondest memory was spending hours in Montfaucon trying to figure out how to get the disc from the top of the statue's staff - the dialogue mentioned that it had a hairline crack in it. While it was a massive red herring, I loved every minute of it.

Tell us something interesting about yourself.
I'm a big fan of UK hip hop, you'll rarely find me without my headphones. :)

I just returned from Bestival with a group of friends. Fourteen of us were wearing replica DOOM masks. It was the most fantastic gig of my life. Hailing from the UK, I really like Jehst and Dr. Syntax - they are lyrical wizards!

Anything else you'd like to add?

      Welcome to the OOTG, Robert, I was wondering why there was no question about it in your interview.

      I'm proud to have backed your team, and help, in a small way, to ensure that you can continue bringing us these games, Robert. I also see that you're an avid Kickstarter, and a man of impeccable taste (I see SpaceVenture in your backer's list... a project dear to my heart!). I'm thoroughly enjoying the team bios, and I think that they're a brilliant concept for mini-updates.
      In what language are you scripting Virtual Theatre? Is it Lua? Something else? Thanks!

      Speak for yourself. :p
      I do like to read about the team. And to learn more about the game, we have a good half a year time until it's being released.
      Actually I don't really want to know too much about the game in advance.

      Hi Sérgio - we would love to talk more about the game. Unfortunately we really can't give all that much away at the moment. But I do think we're doing an update next week showing some more in-game footage. :)

      Hi Robert, nice to read about you :)

      The disc on top of the staff of the statue in Montfaucon also gave me a lot of headache :D I wonder if this is just a red herring our it is some leftover from a cut puzzle?

      Would like to see less about the team and more about the game (we know you guys are competent and have great people -> we are more curious about what you are thinking in terms of game ideas and how is the execution going).
