    1. Be chosen to work as environmental artist

    2. Hide goatse in random textures everywhere, including Varric's chest hair

    3. Release a Hot Coffee-style mod on the internet a few weeks after release, unlocking the "secret content"

    4. ???

    5. Enjoy the fall of Bioware (better than profiting)

    I would rather Prosper assist the design team on the romances.

    Prosper can only bring :incline: to dragon age.

    EDIT : Wait a minute. I think its more accurate to say, Prosper is the only one who can bring :incline: to dragon age.

    Now, I've never played any of this Dragon Age malarkey, but I know enough about it from lurking the codex. If they're hiring environmental artists they could actually be trying to avoid the recycled dungeon thing DA2 got hack for. Perhaps? Will be interesting to see how many mistakes they admit once DA3 comes out.

    Lets all write fake recommendation letters for Prosper. Clearly he is the man for the job.

    I would love to work at a place like BioWare, if only because they're one of the few larger studios still making RPGs. Sadly I highly doubt I'm qualified for this kind of thing and I'm not really in a position to travel. I do get the sense that they have a pretty open and friendly environment, but then, who knows how it really is behind closed doors and with EA's vice on them.

    I think bursting out laughing upon reading the post (considering all the reused environments from Dragon Age 2) might also kind of rule me out of the running.

    You must be really desperate to work for EA...
    Must be a mind blowing working environment.

    Personally, I'd rather code HTML for food.

    We must infiltrate the AAA industry segment. It is our duty to implant a Codexer into a position such as this.

    It has to be an exceptional environment if they are to repeat if for the entire game.

    Shame he only wants environment artists. I'm sure that awnsering his tweet with "You have my Axe" would qualify me as expectional writer.
