Tom Doble

Producer

Ah, yes – Thomas Doble, the most noble. In all the land? Quite possibly!

Tom is part of our incredible production team, who oversees all aspects of the game to make sure we keep on keepin’ on. What a fabulous job he does too! And when he’s not playtesting the game to iron out all all the creases, he can be found…. still playing the game. It’s relentless, really, but he loves every second of it. Now let’s get to know him, shall we?

Tom! Good to see you! What is it you do at Glowmade?

I’m a Producer, doing my part to ensure the quality and timeliness of our teams, and also just play the game… a lot. In my own words, I’d call it Position 5 Support.

 

Now how would your parents describe your job?

A hobby.

 

How did you get to this point in your career?

After 5 years at large AAA studio, I wanted a change in pace. That’s what lead me to Glowmade 🙂

 

What made you want to pursue games?

I’ve been obsessed with video games from an early age, playing Golden Eye at my neighbours house, to roaming online lobbies in Battlefield 2 and becoming heavily addicted to Vanilla World of Warcraft. However, I only made my break into the industry all thanks to a job posting I saw on Craigslist while living in Japan. It was there that I realised that I didn’t need to be a programming wizard to break into the industry and well, here I am!

 

Share something you love doing outside of everything video games.

I love playing DnD, chasing my cats around the flat and also airsofting.

Who or what inspires you?

The players. I want to make the best game that players will love and cherish for years to come.

 

Share something you appreciate about yourself. Give yaself a pat on the back, why don’t ya?

My ability to solo queue ranked games of Dota and still remain sane.

GG – go next.
