Roberts Space Industries has posted a new employee profile that introduces readers to an Origin vet that has a long history working with the Wing Commander franchise. David Ladyman joined OSI in 1991 and worked on pretty much every Wing Commander game from Wing Commander 2 through Prophecy. His primary role was editing game documentation for WC and other Origin series. He even contributed to the WC Movie's Confederation Handbook companion and gave WC Movie novel series writer Peter Telep some insight into the universe. Mr. Ladyman now produces the digital brochures and electronic magazines for Star Citizen. You can check out the RSI interview here and catch him on the Wingman's Hangar webshow this Friday.
What projects have you worked on? Have you worked with Chris Roberts before?
Projects … I arrived a Origin a few months after Ultima VI and Wing Commander (I) shipped. As editor, my name was on every product that shipped from that point until I left, in 1997. That includes WC II – V (Prophecy), Ultima VII – IX (some of this after I left Origin, as a contractor), all of the Speech Packs, Secret Missions and other add-ons, all the various console titles, Strike Commander, WC Armada, and so forth.
… yes, I’ve worked with Chris before. :)
