Charlie and Will came by to spend a week with the team for some Work Experience! They spent time with various Molecules and of course, as well as Dreams! Charlie wrote the below blog about his time here - enjoy!
Somehow it’s Friday already and the end of an awesome week with Media Molecule! I’ll be sad to say goodbye to everyone here (especially the chefs!) but having the opportunity to be a part of Dreams has been an incredible experience. It’s a wonderfully unique project and quite unlike anything I’ve seen before, and learning about its inner workings has been an adventure all of its own.
The whole team here feels like one big extended family, and perhaps my favourite thing about this week has been just meeting and talking to so many new and interesting people. From John -who could probably build a scale Lego model of the office for fun in an afternoon - to Dave - who works in animation but is secretly a rock star - every person I’ve talked to has welcomed me with open arms and made me feel at home.
I’ve only been here for five days, but I’ve done so much in that short time that arriving on Monday feels like a lifetime ago. I’ve mixed my own music tracks, designed and sculpted 3D models, and even been let in on some sneaky company secrets (shhhhh). Pretty much the only thing I haven’t done is broken anything, which is the biggest miracle of them all!
Anyways, it’s been a stellar week and a super cool inside look into the games industry. The weather has been incredible, which made lunches out on the rooftop balcony all the more enjoyable, and I’ve absolutely loved being a part of the action here at Media Molecule- plus, as of right now I’m probably the best in the world at Dreams outside of the development team, so that’s a nice claim to fame- until the game comes out, of course. I don’t expect my title to last long after that.
I wish Dreams the very best of luck when it finally releases (though I don’t expect it needs it) and I would also like to extend a huge thanks to everyone at Media Molecule for making my week with you all as awesome as possible. You guys are the best!
See ya round,
