behind the curtain

There's a new article on the New York Times' website all about LucasArts and our company President, Jim Ward. It's a good look behind the scenes of what we've been going through and dealing with here over the last couple of years. Worth a read if anyone's interested in some of the things I haven't been able to talk about.

You can check it out here.

That article makes Mr. Ward look like a tough-but-fair genius. What it doesn't capture is the years of job insecurity, dissatisfaction, and lack of employee appreciation that I've heard so much about from colleagues of yours.

Ward mentions "healthy tension" between production and QA but speaks nothing of the unhealthy tension felt by a workforce facing 30-50% layoff rates.

Let's hope that getting from 13th to 8th in the game market trickles down to you guys who work very hard to make it so.
