I still feel like I’m catching up to myself.
After working last summer and early fall on two PS3 games as a coder (yes, a coder…my skills were rusty but I was able to keep up), I joined Zynga full time in November.
If you’ve been on Facebook, you probably know Zynga by the games you play. Zynga makes “FarmVille”, “Mafia Wars”, “Yoville”, “Texas Holdem Poker”, “Cafe World” and many more of the most popular games on Facebook.
I worked on a few games and then moved to lead the team that created FarmVille. I’ll leave the various press articles to share more about FarmVille for those that are interested.
I’m finding the whole social space a very interesting and radically different experience than making, what I now call “traditional games” (PC DVD, XBox 360, PS3, Wii, etc.), for EA.
