d3t welcomes Simon Sham, Associate QA Tester
2nd Dec 2022
Tell us a bit of information about your experience/career background?
For the past 14 years I have worked in my family’s Chinese takeaway, however, during this time I have always aspired to enter the games industry. Then in May 2022, my parents decided to retire, and this presented me with an ideal opportunity to pursue my ambition and with that I have been self-teaching myself about the role of a QA Tester, and am delighted to take my first step in the industry at d3t.
I’ve heard only good things about d3t and its working culture, plus they seem to genuinely care about growing the skills of their staff and looking after them. Also, they get to work with a range of amazing IPs – one of the main things I cannot wait to get involved with.
What do you love about games?
The main thing that I love about games, is that playing them allows me to both relax and also experience a challenge. They also offer a fully immersive experience like no other medium.
What games are you currently playing, and what is your favourite game?
I am currently playing God of War Ragnarök and am really enjoying the story behind the game – the quality of the narrative surprised me for an action title.
My favourite game however, would be Final Fantasy X, because the character models and environments were such a huge improvement on the PS2, compared to the PS1 games of the Final Fantasy series at that time. The story was also entertaining throughout, and it had a few mini games and side-quests that I still remember to this day.
Do you have any fun facts or hobbies?
I’m a huge fan of Formula1 and also love making/drinking Bubble Tea!
