Meet Team Röki - Bridie
Next up on Meet Team Röki we have...me…
..wait what....ok time to answer my own questions.
1 - Introduce yourself
Hey, I’m Bridie and I am the Community Manager/ Content Manager for the Studio, and currently Röki.
So if you ever get a reply or see a post it's more than likely 99% of the time me.
I mainly work on post copy and design (GIFs & visuals), the other side of my job is orchestrating blog content and everything in between as and when needed with Tom & Alex. And of course keeping an eye on those all important stats and keeping you guys up to date and happy.
2 - What was / who was your inspiration for wanting to be in the gaming industry?
I think my influences for wanting to be in the gaming industry have been a long time in the making. Starting from getting my first console when I was 5 and every console I ever owned after ( so pretty much every console ever made), to wanting to work for Crystal Dynamics when I was about 13 and even watching something as simple as Indie Game the Movie.
Honestly I think it really just comes down to the fact that I really love this industry and the people that make the games we love. I don’t think any industry has as much passion.
3 - Favourite childhood game
Hands down would have to be the first game I ever owned, The Legend of Zelda : Ocarina of Time. I remember getting it on the Christmas of 1999 and learning to play it with my brother, then I didn’t put it down for years. I still have it, and yes the 2nd Water Temple is still the nightmare it was when I was 5!
4 - Favourite game of the moment
Tough to decide but I’d have to go with the Evil Within series. Shinji Mikami’s work on these games is just everything I love about the horror genre. Granted the first game visually hasn’t held up, but the story that both games tell draws you in instantly and is full of perfect phycological twists.
I just love the thought behind every detail.
It’s the perfect mixture of fear, suspense and adrenaline, I just can’t stop playing it. It’s definitely my go to game and therefore my favourite title, although my 160 hours log on Witcher 3 says otherwise…
Can I have two favourites please?
5 - Who do you think would make you starstruck?
It’s honestly something that I don’t dwell on that often admittedly, but I think I’m going to have to be really predicable and say Hideo Kojima.
I think if I met him I would probably be completely speechless or say the wrong thing…that’s the definition of starstruck right?
6 - And finally… Describe Röki in 5 words or less
Tricky but I’ll give it my best shot,
Adventure, discovery, supernatural.
