rip frd

Free Radical Design is no more.
The games studio that gave me my first "proper" art job has closed it doors. It feels strange to say that I'm sad about the break up of a company, but frd gave me an opportunity when many others wouldn't, and I learnt a hell of a lot in the 7 years i worked there. Timesplitters 1-3 are probably the most fun games I will ever work on, to the point where they spoiled me to the rest of the gaming industry. What other games would give me the chance to build zombies, robots, gunslingers, fetish angels, pinups, giant-headed paedos, cactus men and top heavy cops?
Hopefully T.S. will be resurrected one day (and i'll have the chance to work on it!)
good luck to everyone.
