Welcome to the team, that is an exciting story of how you landed the job. I am really impressed with how passionate you are for writing which was your motivation. The whole Bungie Community is ecstatic with your presence and I can't wait for the ride that your stories will have to offer. Definitely looking forward to the stories of other Bungie employees and new hires that you will bring. Excellent job, urk rules! *high-five*

Nice story urk.

My Best Bungie moment: finally beating all the Halo games on solo legendary.
My Worst Bungie moment: not seeing giant stuffie grunts in the Bungie store.

Great story I am looking forward to more. Especially the ones from campaign or multiplayer map designers because that is what I am hoping to do and I want to know how they got a job at Bungie.

That is some really good writing.

Nice story, Urk. I hope you have a some experiences at Bungie.

  • 10.22.2008 5:36 PM PST

Games are fun

Loved the short story. I took a similar drive to Seattle this summer, 2000 miles in 3 days. Hope to see more about landing that job at Bungie. I would love to use the inspiration to land my own job in the game industry. Maybe even Bungie, been eying that Generalist Programmer position for a while now, and I tell ya, I love the high seas.

When the dust settles, you will learn what true terror is.

Yeah! Way to represent the 'Lou!

Excellent, you are one of the few people who don't overuse that. There was a thread in the forums a while ago saying that it was old news and stupid. Let me just say: Blaming Stosh never gets old. never.

In response to the article, I'm glad to see a community guy getting a job, especially since you had to go through 11 interviews. Hopefully one day I will be a designer at Bungie, or a writer, or an artist (i'm in the midst of learning all of those things). It's awesome to get an insight in to the path of a Bungie Employee, and I look forward to reading more of these!

Keep up the good work Urk!
