Work at Insomniac, play life-sized chess

Jeff Rubenstein's Avatar Posted by Sr. Social Media Manager

The Game Developers Conference isn’t just about showing off new games (really, that’s a rather small part of the conference). It’s a place where aspiring game developers can land themselves the job of a lifetime. Like working for Insomniac Games. As if getting to work on the Ratchet and Resistance series wasn’t incentive enough, the Insomniacs are attempting to lure in new candidates via song at their booth. Take a look:

Nice!!!! LOL!!! It;s such a refrshing thing when you work in a place as laid back as this. I consider myself pretty fortunate to be in the same situation. Insomniac apparently….ROCKS!!!!!

Do they have any idea (they being Insomniac), have any idea when they will be able to show off some footage of Resistance 2?

I actually applied for internship, but I don’t know if it’s any good.

I’m currently a Mechanical Engineer, 3rd year, @ University of British Columbia, Canada. Can anyone tell me what opportunities there are in the gaming industry, or more specifically Insomniac Games, for a guy like me?

I’m just so awe struck by the gaming industry and how it encompasses SO many different forms of Art and Science, that it would be so cool if I could integrate my Engineering Degree somewhere there…

My life goal is to work for Insomniac one day. I want to be a programmer and I am taking classes for it already. I am going to send an application one day.

The video was great!

Man… still waiting for the first “In-Game XMB” comment. I was sure it’d be there in the first 5.

Jeff, Can you tell me if the Official release date for home/home open beta will be announced at GDC? Will home be in february?

I-PWN-n00bs-A-LIVING said:

February 20th, 4:04 pm

Why doesn’t Sony get their act together?

avi_66 said:

February 20th, 4:08 pm

12 new Chimeran Enemies and 07/08 something which points out at some details for Resistance 2

How can I get in the door at GDC? I’m in Sacramento and only 90 minutes away. I’ve been an active member of the PSU for over a year now and would love an oppurtunity to check out GDC please.

    You really need some tie in to the industry, be it development, education, or media. It\’s not open to the public…

Prolog said:

Lol, awesome video!

JayJacobK said:

February 20th, 4:10 pm

Is Insomniac presenting anything PS3 related this year at gdc?

I-PWN-n00bs-A-LIVING said:

February 20th, 4:13 pm

Hopefully they show Resistance 2. That would be sweet, but I doubt it, because it was just recently confirmed.

KnaveX said:

February 20th, 4:13 pm

Well I hope to make a sony dev one day, with my own company. But I want it to be a close relationship with insomniac and naughty dog.

gardea said:

February 20th, 4:14 pm

12 New enemies?
0708? July 2008?

But why in Burbank? Why not….San Bernardino :)

bond2e2 said:

February 20th, 4:14 pm

okay this is all cool and all. but put videos about new stuff. resistance has been out for how long? if you are going to put videos up about resistance put them up about the new one. i have the first resistance i know what it looks like. tells us about home and new games!

Ghostm said:

February 20th, 4:14 pm

LOL, Sony is so smart!
I like how they post this Insomniac post to lighten up the dark tone of the last post. This post is getting a 1 star from me that’s for sure. Why don’t we get back to the real issues huh? I’m not interested in seeing this dude from insomniac play his guitar. Save me the BS’

chewjya said:

February 20th, 4:15 pm

lol…. insomniac is one of the best developers in the industry…. the guy acts and looks like jack black.

Picasso said:

February 20th, 4:16 pm

as long as they are happy I’m happy

now to make R2 better than Gears 2 in every way

bond2e2 said:

February 20th, 4:17 pm

i need something new to play, or at lest something to look forward to. Haze keeps getting pushed back, dont know when home comes out or the in game xmb, little big planet not for a long time same with resistance. we dont know anything about what is going on and it is annoying, and the stuff we do know that we can get excited for is not true and the game is going to get pushed back or it was just a rummor

aaquib said:

February 20th, 4:18 pm

Too bad we don’t have any confirmation that we’ll be able to message friends during Resistance 2.

OrganicShadow said:

February 20th, 4:19 pm

@29: Actually Haze just got pushed back up to March instead of May, so…. no?

Also, no worries with Insomniac. They never have delays. :)

Solace said:

February 20th, 4:19 pm

20 different levels of awesomeness.
BTW – Anyone else notice it says “R2” on his shirt. Is that the new Resistance 2 logo?

aaquib said:

February 20th, 4:19 pm


Sony got their marketing strategy mixed up.


Ahsayuni said:

February 20th, 4:20 pm

To work at insomniac is one of my goals.

Hey Sony, Do you think you could add RSS support when your done with in-game xmb? that would be awesome.

I_Love_New_York said:

February 20th, 4:20 pm

07/08 is probably either the release date for more info or that is when we are getting a demo over PSN for that game.

diablo103 said:

February 20th, 4:21 pm

that was pretty funny

bond2e2 said:

February 20th, 4:23 pm

i am sure resistance wont get pushed back, Insomniac is good with that. Resistance fall of man 2 is going to be tight. Sony though should make information easy to get and tell the people buying there stuff what is going on. it wont hurt them in sales if anything it will help

erico316 said:

February 20th, 4:24 pm

First of all can we get Ted price to do a question and answer on this blog with the users.Jeff i repect you but u didn’t answer me post last time so i gussing u couldn’t help me which is ok or maybe u didn’t see it if u didn’t see it let me know so i can repost.

bond2e2 said:

February 20th, 4:26 pm

o and the haze site still says may. where did you hear it got pushed up?

Frazz said:

February 20th, 4:29 pm

Wow seems like a great place to work when your bosses are in jump suits singing.I have happily purchased all the Ratchets and Resistance and feel great knowing Im supporting Insomniac

Voozi said:

February 20th, 4:32 pm

I wonder how “easy” it’s going to be to get into Insomniac, I’d love a job there or at a Sony related studio.

I get my Associates Degree in Computer Science – Game Development at the end of Spring Semester 09 =D then w/ that I’ll work on getting my Bachelors *deep breathes* theeeennnn with that! go hang with Ratchet & Clank! haha

Ghostm said:

February 20th, 4:34 pm

Sony’s got you all. See how easy you guys forgot about the last post debates? That’s exactly why they post this dude singing. We all just got clowned!!!

KnaveX said:

February 20th, 4:36 pm

Jeff? didn’t you have any ‘interviews’ planned for today?

    Jeff Rubenstein said:

    February 20th, 9:50 pm

    I did. I\’ve been hit with a fever in the 102 range, and I\’m doing the best that I can. Shot an interview with Travis Williams (PAIN), but had to go as my condition worsened.

    I will figure out a way to get those questions answered, sorry bout that.

Phoenix8387 said:

February 20th, 4:43 pm

Any chance we can get this on the PS Store? :)

thingg said:

February 20th, 4:44 pm

Why don’t you just shut up already? If Sony’s got stuff ready, they will tell us about it.

btw, interesting video. Insomniac rocks. I would loce to work for them, but I doubt I’d ever be able to get in. btw, that guy can’t sing…

P_tear_griffin said:

February 20th, 4:44 pm

That was funny and awesome at the same time. Screw programming for them, I just wanna play with their pinballs

DIsmael85 said:

February 20th, 4:57 pm

Im guessing they can do this because they know Resistance 2 is going to kick a$$. I loved the first one.

tirminyl said:

February 20th, 5:03 pm

Ha, awesome video. If Insomniac needs a SCM guy, I will be there!

cduran02 said:

February 20th, 5:05 pm

Though it looks like a lot of fun in the video, I know that fun is balanced out by a crap load of work and pressure (thats the nature of the beast, believe me I know).

Ever since I was a kid I’ve wanted to work making video games. But instead now Im a firmware developer. Though I’ve been hitting the books and learning OpenGL, gonna try my shot at game development, after all that was my original intent before getting my Computer Engineering degree.
