Featured Developer Jose Luis de la Peña (Reto.Jose_L)

reto-jose_

First of all, what is your gamertag in Heroes & Generals, and what’s the story?
Reto.Jose_L – It is basically my real name. Apparently the first day at work I did not understand the question: “You are going to keep the gamertag you choose now, Are you sure? (Y/N)”

What is your position at Reto-Moto?
I am a web developer, so, well, I make web pages.

For how long have you been working here?
One month and two weeks.

Featured Developer Ask Stenum (Reto.Stenum)

retostenum First of all, what is your gamertag in Heroes & Generals, and what’s the story?
Reto.Stenum. I was racking my brain, trying to come up with a gamertag, when it suddenly appeared to me, that I’ve been using my last name since high school. Whether this is because of my lack of imagination or me being self-centered, I haven’t figured out.

What is your position at Reto-Moto?
My title is Senior C# Server Programmer.

For how long have you been working here?
I started January 1st 2013.

What games have you worked on?
This is my first job in the games industry, but since I can remember, I’ve been digging around in SDKs, making small mods, and I’ve even written an article and some tutorials on Valve’s Source engine.

Which tools do you use for making Heroes & Generals?
Microsoft Visual Studio 2010, Notepad++, Perforce (for version control) and so on.

What are your hobbies?
I’m a big fan of the Danish football team FC København, and watching the demise of our arch enemy is an extraordinary fun hobby at the moment. I also enjoy making music, but it seems casual gaming has come in the way of that, at the moment :D

What’s the best thing about Heroes & Generals?
I really like strategy games and First Person Shooters, but it’s been all about modern warfare shooters the past years, and I miss the pace that for example the original Battlefield 1942 had. The combination of the epic warfare scale and the slower WWII pace that is Heroes & Generals has so much potential, and that makes it truly awesome.

What’s the best thing about working at Reto-Moto?
I love working in such a creative atmosphere and with really talented people, some of whom have been making games since I was a teenager, and who all share the same passion for computer games. Oh, and it’s basically the reason I chose this career :)

What are you working on right now?
I’ve been working on internal tools (the campaign map editor and a load tester), and an event handler for the chat until now. Much to come …

What are your favorite games of all time?
Half-Life is my all-time favorite, close followed by id’s Quake for nostalgic reasons. In the strategy genre I’ve really enjoyed the SimCity and the Civilization games. Oh and Diablo! And … the Rainbow 6 games! And … phew.

What is your favorite movies?
Everything by Tarantino, really, and the original Alien and Aliens. If Schwarzenegger is in it, it’s probably also worth watching.Yes, including Kindergarten Cop!! :D

Featured Developer Christian Sinding Nellemann (Reto.sNell)

retosnell

First of all, what is your gamertag in Heroes & Generals, and what’s the story?
Reto.sNell – A play on my name and the german word for ‘fast’ (misspelled).

What is your position at Reto-Moto?
Mobile Programmer

For how long have you been working here?
Since December 1st, so not very long. I am still finding my way around the code.

What games have you worked on?
None that people would know of. A mod for UT3 called The Witching Hour that died when UDK was released, and an artsy game about growing plants, as well as some GameJam games. So this is my plunge into professional game programming.

Which tools do you use for making Heroes & Generals?
Since we are developing for two platforms, we use MonoTouch and Mono for Android. This allows us to write everything in C#, and share a fair amount of game logic code across platforms. Apple’s rules means that the iOS version has to be built on a Mac, so I work on both OSX and Windows.

What are your hobbies?
Gaming, gardening, hiking, food, beer, and wine, music.

What’s the best thing about Heroes & Generals?
The game makes you feel that you’re influencing the outcome of something greater than yourself. Winning a battle as Hero really feels like it has more purpose than just frags, and sending in troops as General feels cool too, since you know it will influence the experience of other players.

What’s the best thing about working at Reto-Moto?
The large amount of freedom in the day-to-day work, and the people here. Just the right amount of geek culture.

What are you working on right now?
Work on the mobile clients has been done by an external company up until now, so right now I’m shaping the applications up for their first release while figuring out how everything works in the system. Also, I attend meetings where we discuss the changes we’d like to make to the strategy game.

What are your favorite games of all time?
The original XCOM, Dune II, Colonization, Baldur’s Gate, Mount & Blade Warband with C-RPG mod, DOTA, Quake II Action and loads of others.

What is your favorite movies?
That’s tough. 12 Monkeys is definitely high on the list, but other than that, I’d rather name Shows. The Wire, Battlestar Galactica, Deadwood, that sort of thing.

A room packed with ACTION!

What does the Reto office look like? – People

Ever so often people ask “What does the Reto office look like?”
(Splixxen! You just made that up! /Ed.)

We sometimes move around to make communication easier, for the people who needs to work together.
At the moment, one of the rooms is called “The Action Room”, where we have all the guys working on stuff for the action game; Level design, Vehicle design, Action game code, Animations, Stats, QA, etc.

So here’s a small glimpse into the world of Reto’s (messy?) workstations ;-)
