Programmer Erik Deitrick is next up for the Bethblog's Inside the Vault profile treatment:
Whatís your job at Bethesda?
Iím an interface programmer. So I work on menus and minigames.
What other games have you worked on?
I started off at Ubisoft working on Tarzan Untamed for the GameCube, which was a platformer geared to a young audience. I then worked at a failed dot-com making small games for a platform that never made it to market, which is a shame because my head-to-head wackamole would have revolutionized all mole-based games. Then I got hired here at Bethesda and worked on Oblivion, and now Fallout 3.
More information.

So, this guy is the responsible for the crappy interface in Oblivion? And he is working on the same thing with FO3? Wonderful!

And the Oblivion minigames. Don't forget those.

He's a programmer. I assume he only codes them, not designs them. Or at least doesn't have the end-say in design.

Is it just a coincidence of names, or does Bethsoft have a lot of European-born employees?

Or it's simply an east-coast thing. They have a lot more ethic diversity than here in the Crossroads of America. AKA the middle of nowhere.
