Someday we will share the fruits of his labour.”Guile continues: “More lasting, Dave has built a creative team that will shape the stories Beamdog tells in the years to come. He has freely shared his incredible wealth of storytelling and narrative design experience with the developers, designers, and artists around him. We’ve all learned a lot from Dave and we hope he picked up a trick or two from us as well.”There’s no word on what Gaider will move on to do next – even the Beamdog team are keen to find out.Gaider also announced his departure via Twitter, thanking Beamdog president Trent Oster for bringing him into the fold and wishing all the best for the team as they continue.Beamdog is perhaps best known for reviving classic RPGs such as Baldur’s Gate and Icewind Dale with enhanced editions for new platforms, with BioWare hit Neverwinter Nights next on the agenda.Related JobsSenior Game Designer – UE4 – AAA United Kingdom Amiqus GamesProgrammer – REMOTE – work with industry veterans!
