Our very own Jeff Lawniczak is going to be wandering the floor up in San Francisco during the Game Developers Conference. If you see him, be sure to stop him and hand him a business card. Perhaps even take a photo with the man and submit it to us. Who knows what you might get in return…

Six hundred robots enter. One man leaves.

When we say “epic battle,” what springs to mind? We’re sure each one of you has your own short list of memorable face-offs: Kirk versus Khan; the old man versus the sea; Dracula versus Frankenstein; maybe even John McClane versus the German Sheriff of Nottingham in Die Hard. But as 2007 drew to a close, the din of a new battle rang out in our office hallways.

When you want the absolute best, you need more cowbell

In the summer of 2006, Mark Kern, Bill Petras, and Taewon Yun met with advisor Jeff Loomans to discuss how to grow the Red 5 family. They all knew that recruiting in the game industry was crazy: people are constantly spammed by recruiters, and competition for quality talent is fierce. Still, the three Red 5ers were determined to hire the best and brightest minds in the industry, while communicating just how damned cool it is to work at Red 5 Studios.

A tall order? Maybe. But you’d be surprised what a few glasses of really good beer can do for your resolve.

We took the team out on a field trip and look what happened

In the admittedly young history of Red 5 Studios, there have been many achievements. However, it’s going to be hard to top the beer volcano we accidentally “unveiled” at GDC ‘07. Unfortunately, we’d all left our cameras in the back of someone’s Yugo, so there wasn’t any way to document the moment when frothy beer-magma burst out of the keg and shot up to the ceiling tiles of the convention center. So sadly, our alcoholic Vesuvius will only be remembered in song and story by those who met us at GDC, and witnessed the glorious event.

Convention booth, pffft. We brought our own lounge.
