That's right, we're bringing back the Developer Profiles and what better way to start them back up than to give you the insight to developer, Joacim Lunde, whom has finished an internship with EA and is now a full fledged employee!
Who are you?
Where are you from?
I‚Äôm from a small town in the north of Sweden called √Ėstersund.
What do you do on heroes?
I‚Äôm a character/equipment artist ‚Äď in other words, I model and texture jackets, boots, helmets weapons etc. So if you have equipment on your hero that was released after January there is a high possibility that I made it
What's your favourite Heroes aspect?
Blasting strike a plane that is about to wingclip me ‚Äď always cracks me up.
What's your favourite class and why?
I usually play as a soldier, I find great pleasure in maxing out grenade spam and equipping an additional hand grenade to create my own ‚Äď personal - rain of fire.
What is the best thing about being a developer?
Walking in to an office where people are happy with their jobs, a strict but relaxed and social environment ‚Äď I just love it, going to work eager to get things done - constantly thinking about what I will do during the day and in what ways I can overcome potential risks. I know that I will work with games for many years to come ‚Äď it‚Äôs almost as addictive as playing them
How did you become a developer?
I‚Äôve always loved art, drawing, clay modelling and painting all the way from being a kid up until I was 18, this took up a major part of my spare time. Around that age I moved into making primitive game mods on games such as NWN and CS. This made me go on to University where I wanted to study usability and media development. During my three years there I rebounded with my art side when we had a brief course in maya. After that I‚Äôve been working with 3d pretty much every day as well as 2 years in a special game developer school (along with fellow developer Kit Eklof) and a 7 month internship at EA DICE.
What other games have you worked on?
This is my first job on a commercial project.
What did you do before Dice?
Studying, working on projects with friends ‚Äď *additional real life stuff goes here*
What other games do you like?
I play alot of different game types but three games that stand out in my eyes are BC2, SC2 and World of Warcraft.
What is your all time favourite game?
World of Warcraft, I wouldn‚Äôt say that It‚Äôs the best game I‚Äôve ever played but it has so many other aspects to it that its easily my favourite.
Any favourite bands or music in general?
Alexisonfire, Dropkick Murphys, Killswitch Engage, Mustasch, Pendulum, Rise against, Soilwork.
What do you do in your spare time?
Spend time with my girlfriend, working on personal non profit projects and play games.
Your weirdest hobby?
There‚Äôs no room for weird hobbies in my life at the moment
And what is your Nerdiest apparel?
Whatever is left in the closet on laundry day.
If I could be a game character, I would be‚Ä¶ ?
I‚Äôd be Jim Raynor, just add a drinking problem, huge biceps and a sweet - bad ass power armour.
