GDS owner and programmer Arlie Rahn states, "As a developer for Grey Dog, I will produce games that both improve and innovate with each new version. My participation in Grey Dog will allow me the ability to maintain focus on making games as I continue to listen to the community and gain user feedback. This is a great situation and I look forward to the opportunity."
"To succeed you need people with similar goals and visions, creative enough to be able to visualize different paths to those goals and strong enough to put ego aside to agree on the best path," states Total Pro Basketball designer, Gary Gorski. "That's why I wanted to come here and work with Arlie and Adam. I look forward to the opportunity of working alongside GDS’ developers in an environment that breeds success."
"I've always believed that there are three key elements in achieving this (a dynamic game world): attention to detail, attention to feedback from the players themselves, and the willingness to be innovative; taking the risks and pushing the boundaries that allow you to find the spark that turns a good game into a great game, says Adam Ryland, Fighting Spirit designer. "I'm looking forward to the opportunity, and am happy to be part of a team that is going to be producing some amazing software over the coming years."
