Interview with Turbine's Jeff Anderson

Ten Ton Hammer / LotroSource's interview with Turbine CEO Jeff Anderson

John "Methost" Irwin interviews Turbine CEO Jeff Anderson on our LotroSource site.

"Can you tell me the difference between a CEO for a game company and a CEO or any other company?"

I think being a CEO of a game company is standing between a lot of different competing objectives, you've got creative talent who are passionate about the art and the work they are building, you've got the technology challenges of trying to get a platform to support customer service and billing and authentication, you've got an
engineering challenge and trying to get a game engine, physics and all that working, you've got a team of designers and artists who are creating content, you've got the business people who need to be doing distribution deals worldwide. I could describe it as being in charge of making a feature film, where you are designing the camera and the film and the actors all at the same time, so it is a complex business and MMORPGs are at the tip of the spear."
