|Okratas has a new 'Vanguard' Q&A with members of Sigil.|
Senior Game Designer Steve Burke has always been interested in games, ever since he was a strapping young lad and the Atari 2600 had just been released; to which he lost many a late night. He's owned and played on most of the consoles since then, but has admitted to being a PC gamer for the most part.
Before becoming a wheelin' dealin' game designer, Steve owned his own business in sales , but he found himself quickly losing passion for his profession of choice. Being one of many EQ fanatics, and knowing that Verant Industries was hiring, he sent a resume in hopes that he would land his dream job. Luckily for us, he got that job. However, our story doesn't end there. He spent severals years at VI / SOE working on Velious, Luclin and even Planes of Power. Around that time though, he knew that Sigil was seeking talented designers.
He now works with old friends and new at SGO, where his responsibilities include world design, systems design, and content implementation. In his free time he enjoys spending time with his four-year-old son, helping him assemble model cars and playing video games.
For week two of Three Question Thursday (3QT....has a nice ring to it, don't you think?) we have Steve Burke, one of the more longstanding members of SGO. As with last week, we've brought you FIVE questions, instead of 3. Maybe we should just start calling it 5 Question Thursday... well, in any case, hope you enjoy our questions and don't forget to check back next week for another 3QT!
