All Hail the NetDevil Troika

September 8, 2005
In the past week, all three of NetDevil’s leading men spent some time with the media. Art Director Peter Grundy talked with about the challenge that is overseeing the over 10,000 art assets in Auto Assault. Design Director Ryan Seabury revealed our plans to “drag the kicking and screaming MMOG genre away from its fantasy comfort zone into the mainstream” with Next-Generation. Finally, if you’re a subscriber to Computer Games Magazine, check your mailbox for the October issue. NetDevil President Scott Brown is quoted on page 54 in an article about Avatars, and Auto Assault is featured later in the issue – a very lovely three pages. If you’re not a subscriber, you’ll have to wait until the issue hits the newsstands – a little closer to October.

Moving to the other end of the chromosome spectrum, not one but two sites dedicated to female gamers gave Auto Assault a chance – and both Game Vixen and Killer Betties liked what they saw when they had a chance to play.

To show support for the Gulf Coast victims of Hurricane Katrina, NCsoft has placed a banner to the Network for Good website on the Auto Assault website. Meanwhile, many at NetDevil pledged to give up buying a new video game this month, and instead pledged to donate that money to the Red Cross. Please continue to keep those affected by Katrina in your thoughts.
