Thanks for all the fish!

Postby Houk » Fri Nov 14, 2014 12:18 pm

Howdy folks,

For those of you who don't know me, I've been kind of the main NISA moderator here on the forum, and more generally I'm a staff editor for the company. I started with the company in 2006, took a break to go teach English in Japan in 2009, and rejoined the company in 2011. Since then, I've had a blast working on stuff like Danganronpa, Atelier Meruru, and all kinds of anime projects.

But as of next Friday, I will be leaving the company to pursue new and exciting adventures! Specifically, I'll be heading to Japan for grad school, with the eventual goal of starting up my own game development company. Before I left, I just wanted to let you all know that despite my sometimes rough demeanor, it's been a genuine joy getting to hang out with you folks and see the community grow and mature. There's a lot I'm going to miss about this place, and I wish for nothing but the best for NISA and its fans.

In the meantime, we're still figuring out the details of how maintenance and moderation of the forum will be handled once I'm gone, so you can stay tuned for more details on that later. It's a big transition period for the company as a whole, so there's plenty of stuff that needs to be sorted out. But of course you'll always be able to get in touch with the company on Facebook and Twitter, as well as our direct support line, [email protected]. And hopefully before too long, I'll have some cool new stuff to show off on my end as part of my new venture.

Thanks everyone for making this job such a blast! (most of the time :P)

I not good at this sort of thing, so I'll just say thanks for taking on a responsibility no-one asked you to, as well as often bringing smiles from your responses when you had to exercise said responsibilities.
:P

With that done-- Wow! All I can really say is thank you for all time and effort you've put into making this crazy place functional and helping bringing over all the games we all love to play. We would have been a wreck a long time ago without you - but don't let that stop you! I'm sad to see you go, but it's great you're spreading your wings, raising the flag, and all that good stuff. I wish you the best of the best in the future and that everything you try works out for you.

I'm wishing you all the best, Houk - and the experience you've had with us will probably help quite a lot as you get started on your own projects! ^^ It's been a pleasure talking to you - and interviewing you - and thanks for all you've done here over the years!

Best of luck in your endeavors, Houk. Weird to see you go since you've been around with us since the old forums.
I never got my avatars.
Still holding my breath for the other Marl Kingdom games.

I haven't agreed with you on anything, but good luck nevertheless, as it's a totally different (and bold, given the current economic climate) decision.

It is unfortunate that you're leaving, but I wish you and the business you'd like to create future success.

The forums are pretty entertaining, this place will definitely not be the same without you since you were our main method of communicating to NISA. Whenever there's a forum post that was last done by Houk, I know that's there's going to be something either very funny or very serious. Those one-liners made to threads before they get locked were also hilarious.

Getting to go to the Promised Land of Japan for grad school sounds pretty awesome. I appreciate all of the hard work you have done for us! :D
