Developer Spotlight – Bioware

It’s easy to be critical about a game. Typing “THE GRAFIX SUKS” in all caps on a forum takes hardly any effort at all. What we sometimes do not realize is somewhere out there is a team of people that spent countless hours working to create those graphics. Even if the graphics are below average, an amazing amount of effort was put forth to produce them. I have had my hand in making games in the past, and I can be totally sympathetic to the challenges of the industry. But who are these mysterious developers? Where did they come from? What are they working on now? Those are the questions that I hope to answer.

bioware
Who are they? Bioware Corp.

When were they founded? 1995

Where are they now? Alberta, Canada

How do I know them? Neverwinter Nights series, Baldur’s Gate series, Star Wars: KOTOR series

What are they working on? Dragon Age (MMORPG for the PC), Mass Effect (Action-RPG for Xbox360)

Oh, well what do those games look like?
masseffect dragon age

Anything else we should know? Bioware and Pandemic Studios are actually the same development group, owned by a private equity fund.
