Hey there, everyone! 🙂
I’ve been a long time visitor to these forums, but not a frequent poster. Although now there’s something that is transpiring in my life that I would love to share, but I need some help on it if possible.
Starting tomorrow, I’m going on a vacation with my family to Yosemite. Trips like these used to be frequent when I was much younger, but it’s now been more than a decade since we’ve returned to the valley. This has been due to tragic events in life and many other factors, but we’ve decided to go this last time while we’re still able to do so (with budding families from new marriages, work, etc.).
On this journey, I wanted to make a side-trip to the old headquarters of Sierra On-line. Sierra, its staff, and its many amazing titles are the reason I’ve endeavored to be in career I am, and (along with some inspiring words from Ken himself) attempted to be the very best I can be, I’ve finally been hired into Creative Development department itself. 🙂 I get to work on the storylines and lore of the vast titles of my company, which is a fitting tribute to Sierra, since they inspired the love of story I have in computer games, and now I get to repay that favor to the world as best as I can as well. Now, with the press-release of our latest title finally given to the masses, I can take this sojourn with my family for this–sadly–short duration. Then again, when are lives inspiring moments long? 🙂
In any case (long story short–too late–I know), I am not sure where the building was actually located. My only wish is to get my picture taken with the building, but if I can’t find it, then it’ll have to be foregone. Sorry it took so long to pose these questions before departing, but my life has been on crunch-mode for some time thanks to the new title, but again it’s all worth it to bring an amazing game to everyone. I just have to make sure I help weave a story that captures the hearts and minds of people, as did King’s Quest, Quest for Glory, and Conquest of Camelot did for me.
Thanks for reading everyone, and hope all is well with each and every one of you Sierra fans. 😀 Let me know if anyone can help out, it’s truly appreciated!
