Bully to You!

You might know Rui Campos, a UMass Dartmouth alum and sometime commenter on this blog.

You might not know that Rui works for Rockstar — the folks who make a number of today’s most popular games, including the Grand Theft Auto series. Rui is on the Vancouver development team, and they’ve released their first product:

Bully

Here’s an additional article about “Bully” at IGN.com. The game focuses on the fortunes and misfortunes of a student at the fictional “Bulworth Academy.” You take on the persona of this trouble-causing schoolkid as he is forced to deal with the hazards of the schoolyard. It osunds like a real kick.

I’m sure that, as excited as I am for him, he must be ecstatic to see the product of his recent efforts hitting the shelves.

I hope I get a chance to see this game soon (my game-playing time has been way down in recent months because of other projects… like blogs and work) and I’d love to hear from anyone who checks it out for his or herself.

Congratulations, Rui! This is the first of many successes, I’m sure.

Congrats Rui, you have achieved many a technogeeks dream. You're working my dream-job! ;-)

Thanks James, and all. I just want to clarify things. The game has not been released yet. It is slated for release in October, we are currently finishing the game off to meet that delivery date. It was announced at E3, which is just a way to officially say that the game is coming out.

We're tight lipped on the game right now, but it's coming together well.

Cheers,

rui
