Happy Holidays from Guerrilla!

Aryeh Loeb's Avatar Posted by on Dec 23, 2010 // Producer, Guerrilla Games


The holidays are here! After a busy but productive crunch period on Killzone 3, we’re finally able to catch up on our Z’s and spend some quality time with the family. For quite a few of us, there’s an additional family member waiting at home this year. In fact, since we began working on Killzone 3 over a dozen of our developers have become parents!

Here at Guerrilla, we observe a peculiar Dutch tradition to celebrate the birth of a baby: we eat “beschuit met muisjes,” which literally translates as “biscuits with little mice.” It’s a Dutch delicacy consisting of biscuits coated in butter and sprinkled with sugared anise seeds. We also give the parents these adorable little one-pieces to put on their newborns:


As to why there have been so many Guerrilla babies lately – perhaps it’s the constant exposure to militaristic Helghast propaganda, which has increased the virility of our developers. Or perhaps it’s simply a sign that Guerrilla has matured. After all, the young turks who stood at the studio’s metaphorical cradle ten years ago are professionals in their thirties today. They’re old and wise enough to stand at real cradles.

Being able to provide for your family by doing what you love is a rare fortune, and it’s during these days of celebration and reflection that we truly realize how blessed we are. We want to take this opportunity to thank you, the fans, for supporting us all these years; for showering us with your infectious enthusiasm and honest criticism, and for playing our games with endless dedication. We hope you’ll share a wonderful holiday with your loved ones, and we’ll see you in 2011.

Speaking of Helghast propaganda, any chance you guys could release the Helghast propaganda theme that was a KZ2 pre order bonus? Or some themes that are similar. I asked Seb about it ages ago and he gave a kind of vague reply. Have a nice Xmas guys.

Great Blog Post, Merry Christmas to you guys as well. The fans truly appreciate the amount of effort put into your games.

Nice Christmas wallpaper. Merry Christmas GG!

Hey, I really like KZ2, but is there technology that can censor the f-words, like an option, for KZ3? I really had to lower the volume or mute it many times during the KZ2 story and so it was difficult to follow. I’m an adult, but the f-words are difficult to bear.

I really love the science fiction theme! That attracted me and so KZ2 became my first and only FPS. I love the weighty-feel too. Well, I’m speaking for my brother in terms of gameplay (but I enjoy watching while he plays), as I can’t use analogue sticks for shooting at all. I bought a Move, and since I got surgeon’s hands I’ll give it a shot.

Again, thanks for making great games and Merry Christmas.
(Can you guys at Guerilla Games do Morph Target Animation?)
