Want to get a job at Bungie, one of the world's most respected video game studios? Easy. Spend thousands of hours writing a Skyrim mod so detailed and intricate, it feels like an expansion pack.
That's what Alexander J. Velicky did, and now he says he's taking a designer position at the studio best known for creating Halo, now at work on next year's Destiny.
Velicky, who was 19 when he released an insane mod called Falskaar earlier this year, told PC Gamer at the time that he put a year of his life into the game with the hope of using this mod as a resume to get a job in game design. It worked. Sometimes there are happy endings.
