Brenda Brathwaite is best known as a designer on the Wizardry series at Sir-tech, but she's had a prosperous career that also includes work on the Jagged Alliance and Realms of Arkania series, as well as a lead design role on Atari's Dungeons & Dragons: Heroes. So, in order to learn a bit more about her and her new role as COO at Loot Drop, I'll send you over to this new Q&A on Develop:
What was the first video game or product that you ever worked on in the industry? Wizardry: Proving Grounds of the Mad Overlord at Sir-Tech Software. It later became better known as Wizardry 1, but back then, we weren’t figuring it would have seven sequels.
What do you enjoy about the video games industry today? All the same things I’ve always enjoyed – making a game and seeing it come to life just never, ever gets old. I love the social game space, really. It’s different than any other type of design I have done, and even more challenging. It’s wonderful to make games for a target audience that includes me. That said, I am sure that at some point in the future, I’ll make some hardcore games again.
