I have being working in the AAA industry for tha last 3 years and the crunch is what is forcing me to find something else to do in life even if I love 3d. Some places may be more respectful with their employees but in my experience the crunch is even calculated in advance cause they know the workers will accept that. Some people is very passionate and don´t mind to do it and that is fine but a lot of people have families and they want to build a healthy environment with them or other goals outside the working ours. Not to mention non-payed overtime and other abuses I faced. Hope this industry fixs this problem.
Those tilesets are sexy. Seeing new tilesets is like getting introduced to a new lego set.
A couple of weeks ago we’ve had a chance to talk with John Riccitiello – CEO of Unity Technologies. There was a lot of questions that didn’t get into the final version of the text. One of the funny bits was about the Monument Valley being featured in one of the episodes of the third season of House of Cards show.
We asked, how did John feel seeing such a popular and beautiful Unity game featured in House of Cards. John Riccitiello obviously loved it, since he’s a fan of the show, but he didn’t quite by the whole idea of Underwood enjoying such smart games
Well I was watching that episode and I knew it was a Unity game when it was featured and it was awesome. I was binging on House of Cards. It doesn’t seem like the kind of game he would play though. It seems wrong. He watches porn and plays shooters, so I wasn’t expecting him to play Monument Valley.

Monument Valley is one of the most popular indie mobile games. The game features complicated Escher inspired levels, beautiful visuals and mysterious atmosphere. The project was featured in the third season of the House of Cards. The main character Francis Underwood (Kevin Spacey) enjoyed the game during one of the episodes and even recited an abstract from the review of the game.
The show’s creators actually called the developers of the project and asked the permission to use Monument Valley in House of Cards.
