This time A Conversation with… checked out one of our local developers and caught up with GD18 alumni Andres Molina.
• Tell me about what you are doing now in the Games Industry
I’m currently a Game Designer at Popcap EA, working on Plants vs. Zombies: Garden Warfare 2. My primary focus is game modes (particularly Garden Ops), but it’s such a dynamic team that I have the opportunity to dabble in different areas of the game. It keeps me on my toes!
VFS Game DesignTeaching AssistantIsaac Calon came up with this great idea for the Students Only segment called “A Conversation With…” It kicks off with Brock Robin (veteran Relic Entertainment game designer and Game Design alumnus), who will be in the TV Studio to answer students’ questions. Students should come prepared! He’ll stick around until 7:00PM or until the questions stop.
Afterwards, the studio will be kept open to play board games, Magic, and Super Street Fighter 4 AE. We plan to start kicking people out at 9:00PM.
The plan is to bring in a new industry veteran once a month for another Double-Feature Friday. Andrés Molina, Programmer and Designer on the Company of Heroes 2 team at Relic is on deck for June.
