    I'm banking on that whole immortality thing myself. Barring that a massive explosion would be a good way to go.

    Does anyone else find it just a little bit disturbing (or prescient?) that the "We are SO hiring!" thread has become the "death / organ donor" thread?

    You know, I'm more scared of not been scared about that.

    Which I'm not.

    Well, maybe they need organ banks, and it only follows they should hire someone for that.

    A golf game is a strange place to go. Do you have involuntary overactive bladder issues, Andy?

    I've opted for the donor sticker on my license, and I'm going to look into becoming a full organ donor as well (turns out they're not the same thing exactly).

    You could also skip a few steps and start donating unused organs now! My best friend just donated her spare kidney yesterday. She's doing fine by the way. They are flying a flag in her honor.

    I'd donate a kidney if it weren't for the fact that I have kidney problems in the family and I'm likely going to need all the kidney I can get.

    True, but your friend is infinitely more awesome than I am. And if you've been out of the country less than one year ago they won't let you donate blood, let alone any organs :( (And I'm O- too!)

    Nah, I'll keep it. In the rare chance that:

    1- My other kidney fails
    or 2- Some friend or relative need that kidney.

    I donate blood everytime I can though. I'm O Negative, so, it's important to donate in my case. Or at least that what I think.

    I donated blood a few times but then I went to Canada and wasn't allowed to donate blood anymore for a year, then I had anemia and wasn't allowed to donate, now I've move to Canada so I can't donate because I was in France...

    It's a bit frustrating, not being able to, but of course they have their reasons.

    I'd never though of donating a kidney before. The thought scares me but it's appealing at the same time. I can't right now, either way (since I can't even donate blood).

    EDIT: I took a look at what live donations are possible. My sources say you can donate a kidney, part of your liver, pancreas or intestine and a lobe of a lung.

    Given my respiratory problems, I'd say giving part of one of my lungs is probably out. As far as kidneys go, I'd need to talk it through with my dad (he's a nephrologist) which I guess means I need to talk to him again :p. But I'd be a bit worried of doing it too early, as the remaining kidney ends up having to do the work of both of them, which means a higher risk of kidney failure as you age if you donate early. But he'd tell me how much at risk I am I guess.
    I suppose my mom could help me on the pancreas issue, being an endocrinologist and all, but I think I'll try and look it up without having to contact her.
    The intestine thing confuses me a bit. I'm not sure how you can donate part of it. I guess a section, and then it's shorter?

    The liver one still feels like my favoured option at this time. Not only do I have all reasons to believe my liver is perfectly healthy, but it would regenerate. Which actually makes me wonder if you can donate several times.
    Kidney would probably be high on the list too, but I know some of my dad's patients donated a kidney and then ended up with kidney problems partially due to having only one kidney left. So I guess I'd be more cautious with this one.

    I wonder if you can donate several organs at the same time.

    And of course I'd need to know if it would be covered and stuff. I probably couldn't afford it otherwise. That might mean waiting until I'm covered in Canada.

    @Will I'd be really interested in your friend's testimony/report and stuff to get some idea of what that would be like.

    RE-EDIT: Oh, by the way, you can donate your blood, your plasma or your bone marrow, too.

    Not since ADAM, I haven't! Bladder issues have cleared right up!

    Well, if the problem ever crops up again, Mr. Ryan, might I suggest investing in a Uroclub?

    Hi,
    I am graduating May 2010, and I am serious about getting a job focused on animation, character modeling and environment modeling. The latest game I have played so far is the 3rd installment of Tales of Monkey Island.
    My reel can be found at marcusng.com. A pdf portfolio will be sent upon request.
    Thank you for your time.

    Yeah, it does. I like the demo reel. After only 220-something replies, this thread finally gets one serious response!

    I would definitely say that all applications should be emailed to jobs@telltalegames.com. I can't guarantee that all of the right people will see anything posted here. But still nifty to look nonetheless!
  • edited April 2010
    I just can't wait to graduate so that I can get a job as a tester that requires pretty much no experience whatsoever!
  • edited May 2010
    thanks for the comments and directions.

    I'd love to apply but I've already got a full time job that absorbs all my free time, and then some!

    Awesome! Web Intern! And I can't because I'm in another country!

    ARGH! T_T (Also, I need to know javascript...)

    Just shouting annoying stuff because I can. You can ignore me
  • edited May 2010
    Although I have no qualifications whatsoever I do live very close to Northern California and I really love your games! :)

    Also I have a seemingly infinite amount of free time.

    So if that sounds like someone you are interested in sounds great to me but if not how could I possibly blame you? :D

    Oh and I draw... With pencils... Just felt like throwin that out there... :)

    Just read through (almost) all of this! So, if you are interested in applying, definitely send some info to jobs@telltalegames.com (I don't generally get to check out the forums too frequently).

    And, again, to answer some FAQs - We don't do international peoples for full-time spots. If it's an internship, that's another story and we can swing that.

    Annnddddd - the tester position, though it seems like it could be done remotely, we prefer to have our Testers close.

    If you have questions and can't get an answer, shoot an email to jobs@telltalegames.com

    Are you telling me now I have an actual motivation to learn Javascript?

    O.O

    The last thing I want to be is a Telltale Game Tester. It just ruins the fun out of everything.

    ?

    You mean 'takes the fun out of everything' or 'ruins the fun of everything'.

    Sorry, leaving.
