Ritual Entertainment Michael Russell Leaves The Tribe

We don't usually post on people leaving Ritual, but I figure this one warrants a special mention. As of this week, Ritual's QA superninja Michael Russell is no longer with the company. Michael regularly kept an eye on not only our forums, but on message boards all over the interweb to help people with whatever technical issues they had with SiN Episodes: Emergence, while also handling email tech support and making sure Ritual's in-development projects got a proper QA treatment.

On top of that, he also set aside time to shed more light on the intricacies of game development and the often-overlooked part of quality assurance, which I'm sure was appreciated by many members of the community. There's no doubt Michael will be missed around here and we would like to thank him for his involvement with the community and wish him the best of luck with his future endeavours.

Related, Michael has generously allowed us to post the next three installments of his SiN / USK series that he's already written - look for the next one to go up shortly.

Smells for me like the end of SiN Episodes, maybe even Ritual...

Was nice having him around these boards and a shame to see him leave (in his QA superninja capacity) but I wish him all the best.
