A wild programmer appears!

It’s a big day over at PlayCanvas towers. We have a new programmer. In fact our first full-time staffer after the founding team.

Vaios at his desk

Humouring the idiot with the camera phone

Vaios joins us from sunny Athens, land of gods, fine olive oil and greeks bearing gifts [Best you could come up with!? – Ed]. More importantly he’s got loads of experience writing games and tools for game developers. He spent a number of years working at Sony Computer Entertainment in London on the sadly un-released AAA action title Eight Days, and the ground-breaking console virtual world PlayStation Home. Since then he’s been working another virtual world title in Athens.

Join us in welcoming Vaios on twitter, he’ll going to be big part in helping PlayCanvas become the game development platform of the future.
