Items tagged with 'Devface'

In a continuing series of videos, of which far too few have been made, we invite you today to meet two of our designers, Mark S (not to be confused with Mark H) and Danny. They are developers, these are their faces, this is DevFace…

Hopefully we’ll get more of these made in a more regular fashion, but no promises!

Number two in a series of staff interviews, here is your chance to meet our in-house Americans Luke (likes coffee) and Moo (dislikes stuffed cats).

As usual we’ve edited out Sackboy’s questions, so you will have to fill in the blanks yourself!

Wee Kenno

Meet the Molecules! In the first of what we hope will be a (regularly?) recurring series, we present to you: KENNY, or Wee Kenno as his dad calls him – audio designer extra-ordinaire and lover of bad movies….

Media Molecule average studio face

We’ve been playing about with the Face Research averager – a neat bit of software that lets you upload faces then combine them. Apparently, if there was to be a big old Media Molecule love-in, then this is what our collective child would look like. (S)he’s so… weirdly smooth. mmmmmmmm. Buttery.

While the program seems to be most effective with a large number of samples, you can get some of the most freaky and ‘characterful’ results when the number of parents is low… behold our inbred Sackboy and sound departments (top-left and bottom-right respectively):

Clockwise, from top-left: Sackboy team, coders, sound team, artists.

The games industry is famously male-dominated. We’re not immune from that here at the molecule, but being a lovely fair and gender-agnostic place, we have a fair few ladies here on the dev team. Here’s what a female molecule looks like:
