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 werenâ€™t figuring it would have seven sequels.
What do you enjoy about the video games industry today? All the same things Iâ€™ve always enjoyed â€“ making a game and seeing it come to life just never, ever gets old. I love the social game space, really. Itâ€™s different than any other type of design I have done, and even more challenging. Itâ€™s wonderful to make games for a target audience that includes me. That said, I am sure that at some point in the future, Iâ€™ll make some hardcore games again.
