This is Sascha Gundlach, he was the supervisor during my time there, Sascha speaks very fast like a machine gun, the way he speaks and his looks reminded me of Woody Wood Pecker...(I am sorry Sascha if you ever read this--please don't take it seriously and be mad about it) Sascha is the technical designer in Crytek. He has been working there for four years. He is one of the seniors.
Thomas Neumann, he is a very kind guy. Since we live close to each other, he took me home one day. I really appreciate it. Thank you so much! I hope we can meet again some day. Thomas's job is something to do with the audio if i am not mistaken. He has been working there for 4 years. He is also one of the seniors.
Shawn Tracy came from Canada. He used to be in the army. That's why he is so bulky. But he is very kind and friendly. He is the type of guy that can always be your best friend. Shawn is also very helpful and funny. I like him a lot. Shawn is the level designer.
Jung came from Korea, he is married and just had a small baby boy. Congratulations! And he is the member of mensa, a group for geniuses with IQ above 150. WOW! Jung is the programmer. He programs day and night everyday! No wonder he is a member of Mensa!
This is Benjamin Peters, he is testing the new demo reel for Cry Engine II. The setting took under the water, with a submarine. We are inside the submarine, and we can see the beautiful sea fishes and plants. There is this red seat. With a wide screen attached to the seat, and a gamepad at the ready. Benjamin will use a 3D glasses and stir the submarine using the gamepad. I mean..wow..i tried the 3D glasses on, and i was thrilled! I wish i could get one of these and the red seat for myself! This seat is no ordinary seat. But it has speakers at the back of the seat and at the front of it. It is like a super gaming sofa! Benjamin looked like a quiet guy. But i think he is good looking too!
His name is Mai...almost the same like mine...Mae..I asked him (when we accidentally met on the S-Bahn (tram) and there was an accident which blocked the tram railway so me and Mai had to walk all the way to the office) about his name, 'Isn't that a girl's name?' Well, as a matter of fact, in Vietnam, Mai is a boy's name. The Vietnamese are just like the Thai, has only one name and very short one. Such as Tang, Tam, Golf....Yea~, i had a friend before back in high school whose name is Golf! Can you believe it?! I don't know what her parents were thinking when they give her that name...But Chinese people has an even funnier or odder name, they don't really understood the meaning of their own name, they choose that name because it sounded cool somewhat to their ears, I have known some Chinese people who has a 'unique' English name such as: Zero, Cerberus, Ice, Rainy, Brainy, Dog (well, this one is actually Doug, but they cannot pronounce Doug, so it came out as Dog), Bruse (instead of Bruce--misspelled ones), Denii (instead of Denny or Deni or Deny), Purple, Candy, Santiago, Jenova (a character from Final Fantasy series), Baby, Sony (as in Sony Playstation), Sonny (as in Father and Son), Catty (instead of Kathy) and many other odd and funny ones. They just don't understand when i told them that some English nouns are not usuable or appropriate to be used as a name. Until i translate it into Chinese then they started to realize 'why the smile' when they introduced themselves to foreigners...
Back to Mai, Mai is a Character Artist in Crytek, Before coming to Crytek, he used to work in the advertisement industry. If only he could fix his hair short, he will look really nice, maybe it is just me. I don't like guys with long hair, it does not suit them. Or maybe it's because there is this trend in Asia, especially in Shanghai, where the guys like to keep a long girlish hair which makes me sick---Where do those REAL guys with short nice hair and strong body went? They seemed to disappear from the earth! In here it is a RARE commodity!
Elisabeth Hebel is from the HR team. She is very helpful, kind, and friendly. From the way she talked and approached me, i could tell that she is very professional and dedicated with her job. With an HR like her, no wonder everybody in Crytek is so HAPPY working there! It is like the only company that i know, that ALL the people are happy and content!
Christian Hasenfratz sits just next to Sascha Gundlach. My supervisor during my time there. I felt quite intimidated by Sascha at the time..so whenever i have a question, my feet could only took me up to Christian's desk. I didn't feel like asking Sascha. But fortunately Chritian was kind enough to answer all my questions, whereas those ones that he himself couldn't answer it, then i have to go to Sascha and asked him myself.
His name is Sino, he is a 3D artist graduated from one of the most expensive and prestigious gaming school in Germany called the Games Academy. Compared to other universities in Germany, which is almost free, the Games Academy is very expensive, with a monthly tuition fee instead of per semester.
Oops...i also forgotten his first name...Since he is Sino's friend, one of the guy in the Engine team, or at least sitting just beside Shawn and across from Christian. Whenever we went to lunch together, he and Sino will laugh and laugh and laugh, even though i think it is not too funny...well..sometimes it is funny, though, especially when Shawn is around, or about the 'über' topic. However, his looks reminded me of my friend back in Malaysia who is a famous drummer for the local star band.
I also forgot his first name...my bad...Sascha asked him to go together with me for lunch down near a small village which is very beautiful. He looks like a very quiet and down to earth man.
This is Sebastian Zimmermann. His last name is very unique. It is a German name, but if you translate it into English, the meaning is Room man. So his full name is Sebastian Room man. LOL! I am so sorry Sebastian, but i couldn't help myself! Sebastian is young, and in my opinion, he is very good looking, He might not look so very interesting here, but he does look good in person. Sigh~
Carl Jones is the director for the Engine team. I do not know him too much other than he does not even want to look at my last documentation. You know, i worked hard for it, you should have appreciated it by at least take a look at it! I hate proud people. I do not really like him so i put him on the bottom list of people.
