The IGDA Tools SIG is proud to announce that we are relaunching the IGDA Tools blog with new authors, new technology, and a new name, The Toolsmiths!  Along with a new design, we have enlisted the help of 3 new authors, all of which have a very clear opinion on game industry tools.  All of us are hoping that we’ll be able to make this blog a great place for commentary on the current state of tools in the industry, a breeding ground for distributing ideas, a test bed for new technology, and a soap box from which we can improve the industry (through tools, of course).

So without further ado, our new authors are:

  • Me, Jeff Ward, Lead Architect, Orbus Gameworks
  • Geoff Evans, Senior Tools Programmer, Insomniac Games
  • Dan Goodman, Founder, Robotic Arm Software

I’ve asked that each do a blog post over the next week to introduce themselves and give you a post on something they’re currently interested in. If you have ideas for things you’d like addressed on the blog, please feel free to comment, or send any one of us an email.

Enjoy the new blog!
