Coming soon - detailed information on the implementation of SMS account management!

Online game The Dev Hour #1 Smile_e Info - April 19, 2010

Let’s start this week’s Dev Hour off, with Poolay. Lead Level Designer, graphic artist at heart, you’d have a tough time not stumbling across one of his works. Details here and there have been punctuated by the acidic humor of this video game junkie. Did you know that Poolay is a spicy and original way to write ‘chicken’ in French?! For such a fearless individual makes you wonder what he’s so afraid of… Click here to read Poolay’s post. =)

Sephy has been around for almost 3 years as a very talented Graphic Artist. He’s renowned for wearing bizarre hats indoors, and most importantly, for all of his artwork (just look at the cover of the Café Salé Artbook or the WIP sign you see all over!) To unwind, this timid fellow has been known to sing a few tunes when times get tough, but only when the mood and the crowd are right. His repertoire goes from old corny French songs, to well-known TV ads. He must be more famous than we know, on a recent trip to Japan, they wouldn't let him in to the Karaoke boxes… apparently due to the flu… Mmm. Click here to read Sephy’s post on Arsenals!

Today’s Dev Hour features Tonio, the newest addition to the Game Designer team.

Like any GD worthy of the name, Tonio is a Gamer through and through who plays games like DotA almost every day. You’ve probably heard urban legends of a guy who broke up with his girlfriend to finish Final Fantasy©, right? Well guess what… it was true!

Don’t be fooled, despite his shadowy past, Tonio is quite the people-person and a real sweetheart - they say his shoulder’s been cried on more than any other! Truth be told, he even went as far as to pose in the buff for a school fundraiser... Now that’s dedication!

  With all the excitement following the arrival of patch 0.211, we thought we’d bring you something light and refreshing on the Dev Hour! This week will feature Baba, a fresh face at Ankama who went from sending in Fanarts to being a 2D animator! Click here to read Baba’s post!

“Today‘s dev hour may contain scenes of a graphic nature” Yes, it’s Ntamak, the puppet maker, or monster master, as he likes to be called! You can probably feel his eyes glaring from the shadows, but don’t worry about that – this guy’s fiercest weapon is his pen... and with it he breathes life into lowly monsters and beautiful marvels alike! Click here to read Ntamak’s post

Have you ever heard the Legend of Kuri? It is an old wives’ tale. They say that in ancient times, when Ankama was still just a sparkle in the eyes of Tot, Manu and Kam, one man bravely stepped in to be the 4th musketeer. Little did he know what lay ahead... Some say that his passion for the job sparked on the very first day, others think it grew on him little by little. But, one thing is for certain, no matter the time of day or night, if you come by Ankama, chances are you’ll find him here, working away with a fiery stare… completely besotted by the spell cast on him ages ago.

This week’s Dev Hour features Game-Designer Desty.

Desty is a young man with a secret… who hides in the shadows. He wears black clothes, has extremely long hair… and lives in a dark, secluded place, where everything is black but for a single lonely Xbox.

Where others would have a video game or card collection, he has a series of dolls… He lives surrounded by hundreds of these strange and exotic dolls

Figures… Well. We shouldn’t be too fast at dismissing the games… He did get a degree in “Game Design and Video Game Production Management” after all! Have to admit, that’s one class you’d be happy to wake up in the morning for.
