Off in Singapore

I realize it’s been quiet around here the past week or so, and there’s a fine reason for that. I left for Singapore on March 18, and I’ve been there. I’m working on an unannounced video game for Ubisoft Singpore, which means, yes, I’ve been sent on an secret mission to the Far East.

I’m having a great time here, with a truly excellent team of brutally talented game developers. They not only place a high value on story and what I can bring to the game with it, but they’ve also been wonderful hosts and become good friends. In my time off, I’ve managed to get out and see a great deal of this beautiful city, eaten more types of food than I can count, and seen many wild and wonderful things, including groups of wild monkeys and a nighttime skyline formed by the lights of the massive cargo ships encircling the shore.

Still, I’m looking forward to heading home at the end of the week. I miss my wife and kids, and I cannot wait to sleep in my own bed again. Once I get back, I’ll continue to work with the team by remote, though, and with luck I’ll be back out this way again someday soon. Ever since the quads were born, I’ve cut way down on my business trips, and it feels good to be back out on the road again, even if only for a while.
