Uh, yeah...I should probably get rid of that depressing journal. I've actually found employment again in April, only a few weeks after I got laid off! I contacted a friend about where he worked at and they apparently were hiring! They're also relatively close to home, so I could save some money by moving back in with my parents and helping them out too.
They're a much smaller company with a much smaller budget than working at a THQ studio, but the people here are great, which is worth it. Although arcade games may be a smaller market, I've grown up with them and it's still enjoyable to work with. Hope you guys play a game of ours!
