My name is J Goldberg, Community Manager for Ready At Dawn Studios, the development team behind The Order: 1886, a PlayStation 4 exclusive title coming early 2015. Yes, my first name is just a single letter, and I’ll be around these forums to talk to all of you about any questions or comments that may arise along the way, as we continue to share portions of the game throughout development.
Feel free to add me on PSN as well, under “OneLetter”, but take note that I prefer to speak with all of you on this forum instead of on the console directly. Make sure to send me a message and let me know you found me in this forum. You can also contact me on Twitter via @OneLetter at any point, where we can discuss my obsessions with cars & racing, failed attempts at cooking, or games in general. [Note: Favorite game = Day of the Tentacle]
I look forward to sharing more information on The Order: 1886 going forward, and to hopefully answer as many questions as possible (without spoilers). In the near future, we’ll build a general FAQ about The Order: 1886 which will be updated as we move towards release. Oh, and you may also want to watch this video…
Welcome to the forum OneLetter, glad to see a RaD member here in the community! Let me or the community here know if you need any help with the Faq or anything in particular. I'll update the Info thread that has been placed in this section as well and hopefully you and the community will help with any updates that may arise so I can revise and update accordingly and quickly. Enjoy your stay and visit often !
Thanks everyone, looking forward to chatting more with you all. Right now we're all pretty heads down for E3, so of course stay tuned for that, and I'll be around a bunch more post-E3.
@johngie - Nice signature. Nearly made me spit coffee all over my monitor...
@Winscar_Shinobi - As I'm sure you know, the majority of footage released of our game so far has been gameplay. More coming soon, of course.
@da1writer - Great work so far on the [INFO] post, and thanks for keeping that updated all this time. I'm sure we'll be chatting more once there's enough for a FAQ, most likely after E3.
On a final note, for those adding me on PSN, all my consoles are still on a moving truck traveling across the US, so I may not accept your request for a bit of time. Don't worry though, the watermelon will appear soon enough...
Moving truck! Also on a bit of a side note, how is it being a community manager? Its one of the jobs I would love to have at some point in my life, mostly because I suck at coding a lot >.> so not many gaming related jobs out there.
If I didn't enjoy my job, I wouldn't continue to do it. You get to meet some amazing people and work on some incredible games. Just like with any job, there's good days and bad, along with everything in between, but the majority of the time I get home from work and feel great about what occurred earlier that day, especially being able to share my passion for gaming and this industry with others.
If you're seriously interested in becoming a CM (or something related), feel free to PM me with some more specific questions at any point.
Also, since it's bound to come up, some of the previous games I've worked on are Saints Row 2, Saints Row: The Third, Red Faction Guerrilla, Red Faction: Armageddon, BioShock Infinite, and a handful of others. I'm still so excited to share more details on The Order: 1886 with all of you moving forward, but for now we have to wait a few more days til E3...
Looking at the forum from my PC for the first time, this is a snazzy setup. How come other subforums don't have a little intro, and 'featured' threads?
Anywho, I will certainly shoot you a request, OneLetter.
This subforum is trying out some new modules, and we'll be adjusting them fairly frequently moving forward. The hope is to surface any important news / announcements, or any really fantastic community-created content. Feel free to provide feedback on it, or anything else about this subforum, along the way.
