My first job out of university was working at Realtime Worlds – developer of the XBox 360 game Crackdown, and the biggest games company in Scotland by headcount at the time. I worked off-site at the University of Dundee working along-side academic researchers to improve the technologies in Project: MyWorld (now eeGeo’s 3D Maps Platform).
Unfortunately, after only three months working there I got my first taste of the volatility of the games industry. Realtime Worlds went out of business after their other title APB: All Points Bulletin sold poorly and I was made redundant. Fortunately I managed to quickly find a new job at Tag Games.
