Hey folks! I’m Trick Dempsey, the creative lead for Defiance. Our Arkbreaker DLC is coming out in just a few days on December 10th, and I’m here to answer your questions about Arkbreaker, Defiance, and the wild world that is video game development.
A bit about me: You may have heard of some of the previous games I worked on while I was at Rockstar San Diego: Red Dead Redemption, Undead Nightmare, and Max Payne 3. Prior to that I worked on titles for Ignition Entertainment and Gearbox Software. I had a weird path getting to the games industry. I’ve been a stuntman, a set designer, a production assistant, and even a costumer. There’s a lot of film and theatre in my background. So, if you linger in obscurity with a liberal arts degree, I can feel your pain. Oh! For people who keep track of folk from the gaming schools: I am graduate of the Guildhall at SMU, which is a fine and difficult program to survive.
Defiance has been an interesting project to work on the past few years, and it is one of my favorites.
