Weird, I assumed that job was sitting in a meeting or two each week, chatting on the phone, and visiting cocaine mountain the rest of the work week.

Really has to feel strongly to get back into the dev side, so I'm kind of excited to see Age of Booty 2.

with the way game development is, i think this may be a rash decision. but if it's what makes him happy then by all means.

I wonder if internally he was able to make some sort of deal with Sony in order to support his first go at it or if he's joining another company as a producer. Maybe going indie?

Or...

Wow, it seemed like he had the coolest job in the world. Checking out all these random indie games and making deals with them to put them in the spotlight seems like the kind of thing one would kill to get paid to do. He must really miss making games.

Wow what a surprise, it seemed like he had quite a position on PlayStation, I wonder what he'll be up to next. You go, Boyes!

He must feel pretty passionately about going back to being a creative, considering he was once a top dog. Watching his career path the past 8 years or so through GB has been sorta fascinating.

Leaving Sony as a VP, damn son. Also no where for him to go to within Sony as a game dev?

Either way very interested in seeing where he ends up and what become of it.

I'll start the kickstarter. Who's in?

If I remember the E3 stream, John Drake has the Kickstarter campaign all planned out somewhere in a Google doc or something.

He had a pretty sweet gig at Sony. I hope he knows what he's doing. Good on him for continuing to follow his dreams, though! He was a good fit with Sony but he'll kick ass anywhere he goes.

Is Johnny V still with Disney? Since they killed Infinity I have no idea what he would be doing cause they don't make games anymore...

Out of curiosity, what has Boye's career trajectory looked like up until this point? I've only known him through GB and a few drunken streams a year levaes a lot of blank spots

Regardless, best of luck to him! He's a great dude and I can't wait to see what he can get up to back in the harsh landscape of game dev.

I don't know about his career but I DO know he sucked my friend's dick at a party in front of at least a dozen guys and girls. It was super awkward.

Couldn't quickly find any video from his Midway days so we'll just start with the classic GB video from his time at Capcom. Ahh the old Sausalito basement...

Loading Video...

Then there was Beefy Media which unleashed this "masterpiece" upon the world.. They also produced Pid which was apparently decent

Loading Video...

Then it was off to Sony to steal a pre-release Playstation 4 and bring it to a porn set

Adam is awesome. I look forward to seeing what he does next!

I sometimes feel like people in this industry largely just want to work like nomads. At least its not as bad as when people were getting jobs at 1Up/EGM only to be able to get jobs in the game industry.

He probably saw all the backstage chaos with the NEO (come on, this thing had to have been announced at E3?!) and went on his merry way.

But let's wish him all the best, cause development of games is a weird-ass business!

It will be interesting to hear what 'going back into development' means in this case and what made him decide to take that step.

@blu3v3nom07: It's super sad that some Xbox fansite bothered making a post about that. It's literally just a Twitter goof between Boyes and Charla and Ybarra. It's pretty likely that whatever Boyes ends up working on, it'll be multiplatform.

So I saw this news where does that leave Dave Lang he was founder and CEO no? I think Adam Boyes is a great CEO for Iron Galaxy as they continue to pursue more publishing opportunities.

This VentureBeat article says

At Iron Galaxy, Boyes replaces founder Dave Lang as the top executive, but Lang will continue to oversee all prototypes and business development. And Chelsea Blasko, the director of product development, will serve as chief product officer at the studio. Lang said in an interview that he and Blasko will continue to run the existing business, such as work-for-hire projects, and Boyes will add new businesses on top of that.

“I am relinquishing the title of CEO, but I am not going anywhere,” Lang said.
