Larry Ahern's New Job

21 Mar, 2001, 04:48 | Posted by: Spaff | Source: LucasFans
Larry Ahern, game designer from LucasArts has found himself a new job after leaving LEC some time ago. His new position? Head of art development for Microsoft's action game group!
Larry will start at his new position on May 1st and move up to Seattle, WA, which seems to be attracting former LucasArts employees: artists Bill Tiller (The Dig, The Curse of Monkey Island), Bill Stoneham (Jedi Knight) and Peter Chan (Monkey Island 2, Day of the Tentacle, Grim Fandango) and the famed game designer Ron Gilbert (Maniac Mansion, Monkey Island) also currently live in the Washington state.
Good luck in your new job, Larry, and thanks to Swordmaster for the news.

    Ackley, Ahern. They both begin with A, have two syllbabllilibles, and made CMI. Easy enough to mix up.

    Its obvious. Microsoft is going to take over every single company in the computer industry. I'm neccesarily in favor of their break up but I think they are just going to take out one publisher/developer at a time. And of course they start with the greatest.

    Well what can I say - Washington state just attracts the brightest, smartest, cutest and most handsome people.
