ANDY: Doing the TCRs on Stubbs was awesome. Not only did I meet a bunch of fantastic people, but I felt like I actually did something really important on the game. I got to learn a lot about the industry as well. Iíve been avidly playing games since I was 6 years old and to get a job at a company that makes them is a dream come true.
