OK, so for those who haven't heard yet (which will be only those who don't have my wife as a facebook friend), life has ... changed a bit for me.
I was made redundant just over a week ago by N3V Games. No notice, just told at 9:45am on the Monday along with the rest of the office that that's it, hand over your keys, clear out your desk and go home.
It was ... a bit of a surprise. Total out of the blue job.
That evening, I sent off my CV to Dovetail Games, N3V's biggest competitor. I don't know what I was expecting, I hadn't really considered the implications.
Anyway, I now have a job there, working for the company formerly known as "the competition", starting in August. The job is in Chatham.
So I'm coming home. The logistical nightmare I've just landed myself with is an international house move to achieve it.
(Well, not strictly home, home, but Kent. Still a lot closer than anywhere I've been in the last 8 years...)
