Comment: Re:Yup, added an easter egg in an old PS1 game. (Score 1) 290

This! We were making 3D games in early 2000's and whenever the engine had some new features we played with it. (we ALWAYS added a goldeneye-style big head mode to all our games :)
We also added plenty of "cheats" which were runtime dev-tools, publishers usually demanded we removed them, but often we just made obscure cheat codes to enable them... though we made the fun harmless ones a bit more easy to stumble upon...

Help menu -> report a bug... Do you think it needs to be easier?
There's the issue tracker( http://issuetracker.unity3d.co... ) for submitting other bugs... and this gives a very loose guide to what issues bug people the most...

*Every* bug gets checked and seen!

The problem a lot of the time is working out which bug needs to be fixed first by the limited resources we have...

I don't know how friendly and open you are, anonymous person, but I've done pretty well in my last couple of interviews; Accepted immediately, first (face-to-face) interview.
Prior to those last two jobs, I hadn't had an interview for 8 years. It took me 12 interviews before I managed to get a job.

Basically, be more friendly, relaxed and relatable. Complain a bit about previous employers and how this new job will fix those problems (you may have to use your imagination), everyone has problems. A lot of the time, what puts perfect candidate A before candidate B is that "they could have a beer with them". Nobody wants to hire someone they're not gonna enjoy having around the office.

Since drinking heavily, I'm a lot more approachable, and apparently, a lot more employable.

Hope this *hic* helps.
