Thanks to Tipa for noticing this and posting about it:
My wife has more than once suggested we check out working for King’s Isle. Unfortunately, they aren’t hiring artists at the moment. Still, these guys seem to get it better than most MMO devs.
I can’t help but think “if King’s Isle can do this, why not Blizzard?” I’m sure excuses can be made, but man… King’s Isle is earning their keep. Keep at it, lads!
…I wish I were at the GDC. It’s a lot more appealing than E3 or PAX. Then again, I’m the sort that wants to go to the SIGGraph classes, rather than prowl the product floor looking for free loot.
