I believe "w00t" is the term to use here

Went for an interview at Krome Studios today. Got a phone call a few hours later telling me I start on Monday :) I'm with the engine coding department, so I'm assuming I'll be able to get down and dirty with the console platforms they develop for (XBox, PS2, Gamecube), so that shall be interesting to say the least :)

Well done, man!

Now just make sure you turn up on Monday with a shirt that says "Give Gazunta A Job" :)

Nah but seriously, that's excellent. Hey Souri, you should have a running tally on how many Sumea-ites have successfully made it to the other side...

Out of interest what kind of example code did you supply them - what do you guys consider "reasonable" in terms of what to submit to show your ability when applying for jobs or hiring programmers for positions (game industry or otherwise) depending of course on which side of the dice you reside

I supplied my Worms In Tanks code and an entity system I wrote for a third person shooter with example entities. The WIT code is GPL'd if you want to look at it: http://www.doomworld.com/doomarcade/downloads/amgos_wormsintanks_v0.95_s... and http://www.doomworld.com/doomarcade/downloads/amgos_wormsintanks_v0.95_b... for binaries and resources needed to run the game.
