d3t welcomes Chris McCoy, Senior Designer
13th Apr 2022
Please detail a bit of information about your experience/career background?
I finished university back in 2012, when I then entered the games industry as a Junior Designer at Playdemic and later progressed to a full Designer. I have also held positions as a Designer at 360 Studios in Manchester, a Design Lead at Bluebeck in Macclesfield, an Experiences Designer at Codemasters in Runcorn, and finally as a Senior Vehicle Designer at Cloud Imperium Games.
I’ve heard nothing but good things about working at d3t from people who work there or know people that do. Plus, the catalogue of games that the studio has worked on is also very appealing!
What do you love about games?
I love the opportunity to explore new worlds, deep dive into an exciting narrative, or just escape the real world for a short time. I also love the ability to share experiences with friends – I especially love emergent gameplay between friends; moments made within a game that you remember and talk about for years.
What games are you currently playing, and what is your favourite game?
Currently I am playing; Sea of Thieves, Elden Ring, TotalWarhammer 3, and Control. However, my favourite game of all time is Thief 2.
Do you have any fun facts or hobbies?
If I’m not playing video games, I am usually running D&D, wargaming or trying to get through the mountain of DIY tasks I keep making for myself!
