At our Belgian office, you won’t see members of our team partaking in a dull and lifeless lunch break. An inside view in what makes game prototyping programmers happy during lunch time.
In this week’s edition of Meet The Team: Game Prototyping Programmer Domien De Mol tells us why he switched to working in the game industry, and how he doesn’t really have a coffee problem.
When we’ve molded an idea into a prototype, our job is usually done. Sometimes, clients want us to build even further. Such was the case with Paris based game developer Kobojo, who asked us if we would be able to create a vertical slice prototype for their new JRPG Zodiac: Orcanon Odyssey.
Resuming our series on the people behind our prototypes is game prototyping programmer Matthew Cormack. One of the more recent hires, he tells us about his inspiration…
Up next in our series on the people behind the prototypes is our charismatic project manager Kasper Geeroms. What does he bring to the PreviewLabs table, apart from groceries and tall tales of his many adventures home and abroad? Find out after the jump!
If you’re one of PreviewLabs’ many groupies, you must have heard of our international expansion, and may have wondered why nothing has been mentioned here so far… Here’s are the highlights from the press.
Next up in our monthly series on the people behind the prototype is programmer Jannes Plyson. As he was the first employee we ever hired, and has stuck with us ever since, we figure he has a lot of nice to say about working at PreviewLabs. No pressure. Take it away, Jannes!
We continue our monthly series about the people behind the prototypes with Bernard François. That’s right, none other than the big boss himself steps into the spotlight to tell us about his origins, inspirations, and ambitions. Take it away, Bernard!
What better way to highlight your fifth anniversary than throw a killer birthday party? We rounded up a cosy gathering of friends and colleagues for a night of food, drinks, and of course prototypes. Happy birthday to us!
Congratulations to ourselves! PreviewLabs is turning four and since we’re all out of cake and sparkling wine, we’re celebrating with a list of the most popular blog posts and an overview of the geographic distribution of our clients from the past four years.
We didn’t become an authority on rapid game prototyping from one day to the next: every successful company has a passionate origin story and ours was recently featured in the Dutch magazine Ondernemers. Read on for some highlights of our short yet thriving history.
Since we don’t make our own commercial products, we never get covered by the specialist games press. So we were very delighted when De Tijd, the biggest financial newspaper in Belgium, interviewed us for a lengthy story about our games lab.
Have you ever been so busy writing code you have forgotten what it feels like to write actual words? There’s so much going on right now that we’ve not been able to keep you updated, but we’ve summarized it below. Who needs eloquence when you’ve got bullet points?
Delivering stellar results as fast as possible is what we’re all about, so it only makes sense to echo that principle in everything we do. Please excuses us when the tweets on our brand new twitter account are less than 140 characters. If it can be done well but quicker, we do it quicker.
Next to a huge amount of blood, sweat and tears, starting up a company also costs a ton of money. PreviewLabs would never have happened without the precious help of IT consulting group Cronos. They’re handling our paperwork, paying our bills and, if we ask nicely, they might even do our laundry.
