    Very clear direction while fostering creative freedom.

      Pros

      It's rare to find a studio that has established such a clear direction while staying true to the project vision. Goals remain challenging, yet realistic and milestones are being hit on time. I am most impressed with the creative freedom I'm provided, all the while working alongside a maelstrom of industry talent. I feel very fortunate to be a part of this team.

      Stay on course.

      Pros

      Fireforge's strongest asset is its seasoned development team - collectively they have created some of the highest rated and grossing games of all time. The project is fresh and exciting and will pave new ground in its genre. The studio has a family atmosphere and is a genuinely fun place to work. The art, design and engineering teams are lead by some amazing talent coupled with a veteran production director.

      Kontras

      Hardly a con, Fireforge has quite a few greenhorns on the art staff. They can get into trouble unless properly supervised, but are gaining knowledge daily. Eventually this won't be such a detraction but it definitely slowed progress during early development.

      Management has brought on some amazing seniors and leads, freeing up the CEO and his executive team to focus on corporate guidance. Keep an eye on them, they are on a trajectory to greatness!

      After several years of hard work and finding it's way, the studio appears to be finally hitting it's stride. Making games in todays market it tough business. The entire gaming landscape has been changing at drastic rates over the last few years, and every game studio that I know has not gone unaffected. The people at Fireforge are a talented, smart group and with the right focus and direction, are more than capable of...

      Initially, the staff mostly consisted of junior, less experienced team members. As time goes on, more senior staff have been brought in, and those once junior are beginning to level up. Making and shipping a video game is an incredibly long, tough, process. Every new company, and every new team takes time to find their footing. Honestly, I am surprised at some of the complaints about the company and can only assume it...

      Pros

      Some genuinely talented and friendly people on the team. Pretty chill development environment. If you can go with the flow, and avoid the axe, the company is a pretty easy place to make a paycheck.

      Kontras

      Wild swings in vision for the projects and company that are never communicated to the team. Some questionable business practices both in hiring and compensation. CEO seems to be a nice guy, but is not someone you want in charge of anything if it needs to be done right, on time, or mindful of reality. Major layoffs and departures over the past year or two have made it clear nothing will be shipping at a quality...

      Pros

      I've been in the industry for a while and it's exciting to work on an original game and IP. This company owns both and they're self-publishing which means they don't answer to marketing stooges or suits making decisions. FF is developing MBER, a platform that supports other games. It's reasonable to expect with a dozen server programmers on board, the game will have good servers. Their first product is a free-to-play...

      This company is near Blizzard. I'm sick of hearing all the Blizzard war stories. It's a start-up and this company is often cheap. Frugal is the word they use. There's also growing pains you expect from a start-up (but the family atmosphere is refreshing and a welcome change from the corporate-run dev houses up north). We've stopped and started a lot on our first project. The Blizzard devs running the company says...

      Pros

      I've worked at big video game companies before (i.e. EA) and smaller ones (i.e. Westwood Studios.) I definitely love the smaller companies better. It's more personable, there are all kinds of opportunities if you work for them (which you should.) I'm really not sure why there are so many reviews with " lots of crunch time." This is the video gaming industry! This is absolutely normal! If you don't like crunching, go...

      FireForge is still considered a startup company. Compensation may not be what you expect from bigger companies, but as I said it is a startup company.

      Pros

      Amazing talent - Art, design, animation and engineering are all stronger than they've ever been and the results are beginning to show. Tremendous potential - There are a gazillion game developers out there, all of them hoping to be the ones who knock one out of the park. But FireForge has the right ingredients to make it into the majors: talent, vision and backing.

      Kontras

      Like a lot of startups, FireForge has had its share of rough spots. Goals have changed more than they should. People's roles have been unclear. Leadership has sometimes been distracted or overwhelmed by having to wear too many hats at the same time.

      Rat an das Management

      Delegate as much as you can. Make sure roles, especially at the senior levels, are clear. Keep the company focused on its core competencies. The rest will come.

      This company is a special one. While it is absolutely a professional environment, it feels like a small company and has a family atmosphere. The owners are super-passionate and care deeply about the people. They go out of their way to take care of folks. One recent example was an employee with serious health issues who they bent over backwards to accommodate. I also must point out how good the CEO is at wearing...

      Because Fireforge is small, and still a start-up, salaries aren't terribly high. That having been said, the company absolutely is a merit based place where folks who perform are rewarded. Again, because they are a start-up, sometimes there are growing pains. These can manifest as lack of senior bandwidth and thus sometimes lack of detailed direction, delays in important things like reviews, or as frequent changes...

      Focus on giving explicit direction to folks, and do your best to control project direction changes. Also, don't let reviews get so far behind as they are really important to maintaining morale.

      Pros

      This studio has a good mix of developers, from extremely senior folks that made some of the best Triple-A titles, all the way down to entry level folks eager to contribute. For a startup, it’s amazing how many “master” level developers it has gathered here. It’s been great for me to be here, because I get so much exposure to so many talented people, and I have learned so much from everyone around me! The project...

      As the design direction and development pipeline shifted around, we had to quickly learn new software & techniques & processes. Learning is always a good thing to me, but sometimes the quickness needed do add pressure to the team. We have had to do some crunches to showcase things; but, overall, the crunches here are really lite, especially compared with the ones I had to endure at other studios before. Things sometimes...

      Please try to nail down the design & schedule & keep the team informed. FireForge is a really nice studio w/ lots of really talented people, and I really want it to succeed. Don’t be afraid to ask more of the team, such as crunches or be held accountable for their decisions, as long as they are clear & meaningful. Keep improving the tools & pipelines, so we can work more effectively. I would really hate to see FireForge...

      Still a startup, with many of the challenges that come with not having shipped a product yet. For some of the staff who have not worked at a studio before and do not understand the business side of the industry, every bump is met with a degree of fear. As with all studios, there are crunch times, but they don't seem to last as long as I've experienced in the past.

      Every organization has issues with communication, and that’s something we can improve upon. When changes in direction have to be made, be sure to lay out the reasons for the change, how we went about looking at our options, and why we decided on the new direction. Over communication is not a bad thing.
