Die Kollegen von Warcry haben ihre "People behind the scenes at Vanguard" Reihe um ein neues Interview erweitert. Diesmal ist Dave Gilbertson, der Produzent des viel versprechenden Titels im Gespräch. Fokussiert werden die bisherigen Lebenswege des Spieleentwicklers, sein Job und natürlich das kommende Vanguard.
So, let\'s say Brad\'s the Wizard of Ahs, and Keith\'s the Scarecrow…that would HAVE to make Dave Gilbertson the Tin Man. Ahs (okay, I made up the name) is better known as Vanguard: Saga of Heroes, the breathtakingly beautiful and gleefully anticipated MMO being created, as we speak, by the original team (and friends) who gave us EverQuest.
The first thing I noticed about Dave when I met him at the Vanguard Summit in California in October was the air of confidence and relaxation he had about him. How could this be? Here the whole Sigil office (the company created by Brad McQuaid, CEO, and head honcho at Vanguard) was a-tizzy with 21 reporters tromping through their offices, noisily exclaiming about everything they saw, greedily asking questions, and generally putting the office routine into an uproar.
Quiet and unassuming, Dave wore a little grin of mischief that seems permanently hovering over his face. Later that evening, at Dave & Busters, he enhanced that ambience with an additional air of kindness and caring. Unfortunately, we didn\'t get to talk much there. It wasn\'t until I interviewed him face to face on IM the other evening that I got to know David Gilbertson, lately promoted to Producer at Sigil, the man and the person. His story…to use an overworn phrase…rocks!
