From a gamer's standpoint, it's always interesting to take a peek into

professionals to the href="http://www.tentonhammer.com/node/42963" target="_blank">multi-year
veterans. In their recent "Meet the Team" feature, the href="http://www.tentonhammer.com/taxonomy/term/860"

Q: What is your typical workday like?
A: Each day I wake up and try to think of new ways to make
our programmers' lives more difficult. This usually entails finding new
ways to stretch our tech to the limits in order to make whatever power
I'm working on really stand out from what other games allow. I think
it's critically important that we remember we're making Champions, and
that our powers aren't "spells" like in a fantasy MMO, but are instead
flexible, epic superpowers.
