All great Saga needs all sort of Heroes 🦸♀️
As part of Women's day (on the 8th of March), Tiffi would like to take the opportunity to celebrate some of our strong and talented women at Candy Crush Friends 💪 This week, we'd like to introduce to @OddFish, Game Producer - We sat down with her, asked a dew questions and here is what she's told us.
Sit down, relax, enjoy the read and come back next week for more!
1 . What was your dream job as a child?
I wanted to be an interpreter and facilitate cross-country diplomatic negotiations and other important happenings. Translators and interpreters were considered super cool people in the former USSR (where I grew up), since foreign languages were a sacred knowledge not many people had access to.
2. What is your favorite game?
Oh, that’s a tough one. If you just look at the sheer amount of hours played, it’ll be Heroes of Might and Magic 3 – this is the first game with which I pulled an all nighter and it will always have a special place in my heart. I also dearly love Monkey Island series and have been thoroughly enjoying Surviving Mars. Recently I have been playing mostly mobile games, Candy Crush Friends (of course) and Farm Heroes Saga being my favourite.
3. What do you like about your position?
Seeing how an idea grows from a small glimpse of someone’s creativity into an actual and tangible game feature, played and enjoyed by people around the world – this never gets old or boring, and I always get butterflies in my stomach when we hit the release button (by the way, watch this space, something sweet is coming to Friends soon). I also love going to forums to read what our players say about our game.
4. What are you challenges as women in the gaming industry?
I have been very fortunate with my managers, mentors and teams who supported me all the way and helped me to believe in myself, so I can’t really say that I’ve experienced serious obstacles related to my gender. I am trying to give back by supporting other women in gaming.
5. Any advice for the women out there wanting to join a gaming company?
Don’t be afraid, play games, show up, be curious, learn new skills – gaming industry is fluid, and the more knowledge of different aspects you have, the more valuable you are.
6. Do you have a motto? If yes, want to share it?
Ask more questions!
7. Who Inspires you and why?
One of my biggest inspiration has always been David Bowie – his kindness, wisdom, intelligence and hard work. Also, I look up to Douglas Adams, Pippi Longstocking and my fantastic teams at Friends - their talent, creativity and drive to always improve never seize to amaze me.
🍭 Well thanks so much for answering our questions, @OddFish! It's amazing to see your passion and inspiration. You truly are a source of inspiration yourself! 🌟
