Damien’s level will be the centerpiece of the EIEIO demonstration, so we’re going over it with a fine-toothed comb.

I was sitting at the conference table, so I could only catch about 70% of the team, but here’s a group photo during an end-of-the-week meeting in which we caught the team up on all that transpired during our two-day-long design and planning meetings with Sierra and sister studio Terminal Reality. Ghostbusters is in full production, and our few remaining months have been mapped out with pinpoint precision.
