Developer Friday

A new Developer Friday interview was posted last Friday. Robert Nagy is one of our four programmers. He joined the team over half a year ago and took care of some of our most biggest challenges such as the save game system and settings system.

Robert wrote: Who are you and what do you do on “The Ball”?
My name is Robert Nagy. I have mostly been doing user-interface programming such as the settings menu and hint system, and I implemented save games and achievements. I work part-time as a System Developer for the Swedish Television, with a specialization towards graphics and real-time systems. At the same time I’m also studying for my masters degree in Software Engineering at Chalmers University of Technology. In my spare time I work on “The Ball”.

My brother and I looked at this for about an hour and we think we finally figured it out. Definitely not as easy as you said :P We still aren't entirely sure we got it correct because there's little information confirming it. The only reason we got the word was because I know quite a bit about Egypt and it just kinda jumped out at me after a while. Plus, I remember seeing the flower of life on the walls when I played the mod.
