Once in a while we feature one of the developers from the team and tell you a bit about who they are and what they are working on. This time it’s none other than the first lady of the production of Heroes & Generals: Project Coordinator, Reto.Lusa.
What is your gamertag in Heroes & Generals, and what’s the story behind it?
Reto.Lusa – a combination of the first letters in my surname and the first letters in my first name. This is my first gamertag ever – Not the most inventive one though… Maybe Reto.Hardcoredinator would be better? :)
What is your position at Reto-Moto?
I’m project coordinator, which means that it’s my task to keep everyone informed about new tasks and bugs and do the best to make sure that we make our deadlines. I also do other ad hoc things.
For how long have you been working here?
I started at Reto-Moto February 1st 2012.
What games have you worked on?
This is my first game production ever, but I used to work in advertising and post production, so I’m familiar with some of the terms production-wise.
Which tools do you use for making Heroes & Generals?
Microsoft-Project, Mantis, Post-it, Pen and paper and a lot of talking.
What are your hobbies?
I’m pretty active doing the summer (during the winter I just eat and sleep). I have a nice little bungalow house on the outskirts of Copenhagen with a big garden that needs a lot of work – and I also love bike riding.
What’s the best thing about Heroes & Generals and working at Reto-Moto?
I could go on and on how the game is being designed and all the positive things about the game, but I must admit that I don’t know many games so I find it difficult to compare – but I am deeply impressed about H&G! I do know one thing and that is, this game is going to blow your mind.
I also have to mention all my colleagues who create amazing things to the game everyday. Reto-Moto is a great place to work – with a lot of dedicated, funny, nice and intelligent people.
What are you working on right now?
Practicing my gamer lingo and coordinating a lot of things at the moment, getting the game ready for the Beta stage.
What are your favorite games of all time?
I haven’t played for many years, but Giana Sisters, Pinball and Racer games where my favorite. But now H&G is my favorite game of all times – of course! ;)
What are your favorite movies?
Oldies but goodies – The Shawshank Redemption, Thelma & Louise, The Prestige, Leon, The talented Mr. Ripley and many more (with Johnny Depp :) ).
