It is with some sadness, and some excitement, that today I announce that I am leaving Wyrd. My last day will be April 20th.
Wyrd has been an amazing home to me and given me so many opportunities. I moved to Georgia to work at the company, and I don't regret a moment of it. I've gotten to work with some amazing people, and I've gotten to work on some great projects.
I've learned a lot and grown as a designer, and I couldn't have done that if Wyrd didn't give me the freedom to try new things. And the reality is that Wyrd is so much more than a bunch of people sitting in an office in Georgia -- it also includes an amazing community of players, fans, and supporters worldwide. You've all helped me along my journey, and I appreciate that immensely.
That is why there is some sadness at this crossroads. It'll be sad to leave my coworkers and my community. It will be sad to leave these games. I've been involved in Malifaux since 2009. Over the years my involvement has only grown to the point we're at today. As my wife said: it's the end of en era.
But all eras end, and they pave the way for something new. I see bright things in the future for Wyrd. I'm leaving a great team of designers, and a whole host of people passionate about the games and projects of Wyrd, both internally and externally. I have every confidence in the future of these games, and this company, that I love.
That's why this transition provides some excitement, too. There's always something exciting about the next horizon, sure, but I'm also excited to be able to play our games as a player again. I'm excited to be able to just be another face in the crowd of our community, and to be able to be genuinely surprised and excited for the new ideas that the Wyrd team is cooking up.
As you can see, even though I'm leaving, I won't really be gone. There's too much to look forward to coming out of Wyrd for me to ever really give it up.
Thank you all for the opportunities, the jokes, and the patience. Thank you, Wyrd, for everything you've done for me. I hope to see you all across the gaming table someday soon.
