Anyone have an opinion on Redtribe?
Well I'll say one thing about them, and that is I've applied for most companies in Aus and even the ones that were interested in me still took months to get their shit together, some didn't even send a courtesy reply, whereas with RT the entire thing from initial contact to conclusion took just over a week.
Now I'm by no means vouching for them yet because I simply dont know them, it could turn out great, it could turn out crap. But what I do know is that not a single Aus company has impressed me yet to date, so much so that I came verrry close to ditching the industry alltogether and I was applying in advertising and film with no interest in looking back. These guys however showed great efficiency and went out of their way for me, they even read one of my novels which is completely unwarrented, and because of that I'm gonna give games another year's effort, I'm pretty sure RT will be the last Aus games company i'll work for though so if it goes bad then I'm out... so anyway thats what I know.
So everyone is aware.....I've heard alot of negative rumours about this company and frankly I'd prefer to hear from someone that has first hand experience of them rather than a whole lot of baseless conjecture. I know what the industry in Australia is like, having been part of it for quite a while and I know not to listen to chinese whispers from 3rd or 4th hand parties. If Sumea is supposed to be an open and honest forum then let's start being open and honest here rather than whispering behind the bike sheds.
Well I'm just about to start there so I'll answer in a few months... :)
