(Re)Welcome to Black Lantern Studios

Top North American Cities for Game Development – Part 2

Big welcome to 2K Marin, who posted 3 new job ads today!  They’re looking for help on Bioshock 2.  You can’t ask to be working on something much more high profile than that.  As an aside, I think my wife is still upset with me for harvesting too many little sisters.
