In former times - when Obsidian was still Codex' favorite developer - they gave interviews to us. Nowadays they answer questions at the Bethblog. And so does Larry Liberty
, Senior Producer on Fallout: New Vegas.
What’s your job at Obsidian?
Put simply, I manage the production of Fallout: New Vegas. In practice, that means managing a small team of producers that in turn manage the five cross-discipline teams of developers responsible for creating the game. [We have broken the team into smaller sub-teams, each focused on a specific goal each milestone. Incidentally, these teams are all named after items found in the Fallout universe: Team Buffout, Fancy(lads), Mentats, Nuka, and Psycho.] I manage two of the teams myself and coordinate with the rest of my production crew in a relatively organic manner. My primary job is to see that Josh’s [Josh Sawyer, Project Director/Lead Designer] vision is executed to the fullest extent possible while staying within scope.
What games have you worked on?
Including a few cancelled titles, I have worked on twentysomething games. When I was a kid, I tested a couple of Atari 5200 games and an Atari Lynx title when I was in college. My first game as a member of an actual development team was MLB Pennant Race, the first Sony baseball game for the PlayStation. I am credited on other games as either a programmer or producer: EverQuest, PlanetSide, Star Wars Galaxies, Tony Hawk 4, NBA: The Life, D&D Tactics, The Witcher, Neverwinter Nights 2: Mask of the Betrayer, among others.
Larry Liberty - what a badass name.
