Game over. New game?
Two years. Six major content releases. Twelve major event releases. The glorious return of tournaments. The less-than-glorious internationalization and Chinese launch (and then shutdown). Dozens of new mice, hundreds of new items, and thousands and thousands of new players. It’s been a wild ride.
But as of today, HitGrab and I officially part ways.
I leave my responsibilities in good hands. Hands that were there before I was, even. MouseHunt will continue on, and oh man the secrets I know. The plans I am in on. The places this game is headed, they are exciting.
I am also headed for exciting places. I’m joining Panvista, an enterprise mobile shop just up the road, to help them make their web backend even more awesome. They use a lot of tech I’m already proficient in and can lend my expertise to, but also a lot of tech I’ve been wanting to learn.
I’m going to miss a lot of people. Co-workers, players, friends all. But I’ll still be on MouseHunt, I’ll still be on Facebook, and I’ll be just down the road. I’ll still come visit (and DOMINATE the Street Fighter ladder).
I’ll make a lot of new friends too, though. Panvista’s full of interesting and passionate people, and even as I’m sad to say goodbye to Hitgrab today, I’m really looking forward to starting at Panvista next month.
To everyone who’s made this such an awesome two years: Thank you so much! You all know who you are, I’m sure – if you’re thinking you might be one of those people, you are. And to everyone who’s going to make the next two years and beyond just as great: Hello! Looking forward to spending more time with you!
