Unfortunately we have to say goodbye to one of our team members here on Malevolence :( but he's on to bigger and better things!

We always hope that the indies working on Malevolence will be able to use their experience on the project to get access to bigger and better things, or - best case scenario - to use it as a foothold to get into the industry. In the case of one of our 3D team, Ethan, that has happened, which is fantastic news for him! But unfortunately, given the nature of the industry, it means that he can't continue to work on the project.

Ethan has gotten a job over at Lightmare Studio on the Gold Coast of Australia, and they've been kind enough to let him finish up the model pack that he was working on at the time he got the job, but once that is done, we'll have to say goodbye to him. It's a bit sad for us but we really do wish him well. He's an incredibly talented fellow and he deserves all the accolades we can give!


His remaining planned work is going to be divided up amongst the capable hands of the other 3D team members, Greg and Ian, but we may end up bringing someone new one (if you care to send us a folio!)

So yeah, sorry that it's bad news, guys, but we just thought we'd let you know. Regular blog posts will resume next time!

I thought you said 'we' can't continue the project and I died a little for a minute.

Anyway it is a shame to see him go, his work was superb and something I hope I can aspire to some day. Best of wishes to him.

Hahaha it would take a feiry meteor crash-landing into Brisbane for us to stop work on the project. And even then, it'd probably only push us back a week or two!
Very sad to have Ethan leave us, but who are we to stop him going on to awesomeness? :)

I can only hope that the talent of the remaining team members won't be noticed before the game is finished ;)

I have hard time believing this statement. An Indie wishing to work for the industry? This can't be a true indie, because "Indie" means independent, and working for "the industry" means losing that independence.

So either he never had the indie spirit or there is more behind it, i.e. inconstancy within the team.

He's very young :) usually when a young person is indie it's because they haven't got a choice. When they get an offer to actually work in the industry, that's hard to pass up! Once he's had his fill, he'll return to being indie with much more experience and expertise! :D
