Starting on December 1, 2015, I no longer work for Sega Games.
Leaving Sega was not a trivial decision. I worked there for a bit more than five years, and worked on 11 different titles for lots of platforms. It was a huge honor working for the company I had always admired, and I am very happy to have left my footprint, even if small, in such a great place.
But times have changed. I have changed and Sega has changed. All things eventually come to an end, and I think I left in very good terms with them. However, there are many very deep issues I disagree with them, and I don’t want to keep on swimming against the current with them.
Anyways, I believe such disagreements are natural after working for so long with such a big company, so I don’t leave with any resentments or regrets. I sincerely wish the best for them, and now it’s time for me to move forward.
I took December to visit my family here in Colombia, and I will be back in Japan just in time for winter Comiket, and to join my new awesome employer after winter break.
Even though my next job won’t be game related, I will continue working in Japan as an engineer, and I will keep on working on my indie games in my free time. Hopefully I will talk about that sometime in the future.
For now, I wish you all some very happy holidays!
