A few weeks ago Epic Games had a very special visit from Robert Llerena, a child from the Make a Wish Foundation. Robert’s wish was to visit Epic Games, meet the creators of Gears of War and learn about their process for creating games. One day Robert hopes to have a career in the video game industry, so he wanted to learn more about the skills and techniques required to make games.
Robert and his family joined Epic Games Multiplayer Designer Quinn DelHoyo for a tour of the Epic Games facility. He had the opportunity to get an inside look at the developer’s offices, arena, playtest lab, mocap studio and even took a few rides down the Epic slide.
After an in-depth tour, Robert and his family had lunch with Quinn in the arena, followed by an exclusive playtest of never-before-seen content from Gears of War Judgment. He had the opportunity to try both OverRun and Free-for-all modes against the developers and visiting pro gamers.
It was great meeting Robert and his family and it was so amazing to know that his biggest wish was to visit Epic Games! Thank you to the Make a Wish Foundation for making such an awesome day possible.
