We interviewed our Programmer Lead, Peter!
Her Interactive: How long have you worked at Her Interactive?
Peter: I’ve worked here just over 6 years.
Her Interactive: What are you currently working on?
Peter: I am working on an internal tool to help our designers. Currently, they forge the logic of the game out of sheer will and brainpower. If all goes well, they will have some support in their quest. I call this tool “Brain.”
Her Interactive: Do you have a favorite saying or quote?
Her Interactive: And what is your favorite quote?
Peter: Do your best to present yourself to God as one approved, a worker who does not need to be ashamed and who correctly handles the word of truth. -2 Timothy 2:15
Her Interactive: If you could invent a gadget or machine, what would it be called and what would it do?
Peter: The gadget would make the consequence of a stupid action immediate so that practitioners of stupidity would associate bad results with stupid actions. I have no name for this gadget, and I clearly should not be allowed to invent things.
Her Interactive: If you were the main character of a video game, who would you be and what is your story or mission?
Peter: I would be Indiana Jones as he’s one of the few heroes whose life pattern is not ultimately self-destructive. My mission would be to recover lost artifacts, defeat the Nazis, have an awesome soundtrack and, of course, run away from snakes.
Her Interactive: What is your favorite Ice Cream Flavor? Either in real life or from the ice cream parlor in Alibi in Ashes?
Peter: I am partial to mint chocolate chip and to vanilla bean. But not together.
Her Interactive: What is your favorite movie?
Peter: I only get one? That’s so mean of you. Just for that, I’m going to pick “Mean Girls.” Know why? Because you’re a mean girl. See the connection? I want people to know how, like, smart I can be, and stuff.
Her Interactive: If confronted with one of the following options, which would you choose?
A) Expose and catch a criminal
B) Sleep in a haunted place
C) Hunt for treasure in a dangerous location
Peter: Clearly (A). (B) is impossible because you cannot sleep if you’re creeped out; (B) is a trap. (C) is just asking for bodily damage, and that will never be on my bucket list. (A), by process of elimination, is the only viable answer.
Thanks Peter for helping to put our games together and all of your hard work!
