Default Obsidian Entertainment - Tim Cain Stays On

February 21st, 2012, 13:40
I didn't actually know Tim Cain's time at Obsidian had been potentially temporary but Chris Avellone tweeted today that Tim has now signed on as a permanent staff member:
My heart grew three sizes today when Tim Cain said yep, it was official - he was going to stay and work with us full-time.
More information.

Way to go, Black Isle.
Now all they need is Boyarsky and Anderson, though I think none of them would be willing to join Obsidian, since Boyarsky is already making big news with Diablo and Anderson is not in the computer games industry anymore.

I hope they will Kickstart a new steampunk RPG project in the veins of Arcanum with Tim Cain is the lead designer.

Or post-apoc, the man has a knack for at least both genres. I thought he was only temporarily at obsidian while waiting for a permanent position he had been promised in another studio, guess that fell through.

It seems my information was a little rusty. I thought he was still in real state business.

After Troika Games collapsed, Anderson left the game industry for a short time to sell real estate.[1]
Interplay reopened in-house development and in 2007 hired Anderson as creative director for an unannounced Massively multiplayer online game.[2]
In March 2009, Anderson joined inXile as creative director.[3] In January 2011, he left inXile to join Turtle Rock Studios.
Thanks for the heads up.


I can't help but wonder, what was the studio that Cain intended to leave Obsidian for?

It sounds like it didn't. He just decided to stay.

Turtle Rock has actually several Ex-Troika (The current CEO worked at Troika too), Obsidian, and so on guys.

It's a shame they are working on shooters.

How about a Rifts or new starflight game?

If you don't stand behind your troops, feel free to stand in front.
