Thanks a lot ! Did you give some masterclass of something ?

How is the Clovers sit on top between tiles? for mine, blend modes doesnt seem to be working... they follow the height of the tiles which results in extreme distortion of clovers following the height changes of tiles

Gearbox Software comes to Quebec
11 December, 2015

Gearbox Software announced the opening of a new studio in Quebec City. New company of the Borderlands creators is going to create new games based on global franchises.

Gearbox Studio Quebec is going to “entertain the world” as the press release suggests. The most important thing here is that, if you’re lucky to live in Quebec, you are more than welcome to apply for a job in a new company. Especially if you want to become a part of the AAA-production.

We are fortunate that there is a lot of demand on us to deliver our brand of interactive entertainment within the powerful franchises we have at Gearbox Software and the challenge for us is growing to meet this demand. As part of our strategy we have already successfully built an expanded all-new headquarters in Frisco, Texas. We now look ahead to another key and exciting step which is our commitment towards our all-new Gearbox Studio Quebec where we strive to team up with some incredible talent in the world of video game development outside of Texas to help us build fun and exciting video games within our tent-pole brands.

Randy Pitchford, President of Gearbox Software

The headquarters of Gearbox Software are in Texas. The company has been going strong for more than 16 years. The Quebec branch is the first for Gearbox Software Studio.

Sebastien Caisse is going the Co-Studio Head and Director of Operations. He’s got a lot of experience working in Quebecor Media as well as business development manager and writer at Squeeze Animation. He was fortunate enough to work with Sony, Microsoft and CBS.

Pierre-Andre Dery will act as Co-Studio Head and Studio Creative Director. Andre was an Art Director at Activision. He worked on Skylanders and The Amazing Spider-Man. He also helped to build the visual design for Farcry, Deus Ex and World of Warcraft.

It’s obviously a big step for Gearbox and a great opportunity to get a cool job, if you like building games. You can check out the open positions at the official website.
