FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:
Hoffman Estates, IL – December 10, 2009 – High Voltage Software, Inc., the independent developer behind this year's hit Wii first-person shooter The Conduit, today announced that it has appointed Anthony Glueck as its new Development Director. Glueck will manage the studio's programming department and Advanced Technology Group.
Glueck assumes the Dev Director mantle following the studio's release of The Conduit; the title, which was built using Quantum 3 Game Engine technology, is widely regarded as one of the most graphically and technologically advanced games available for the Wii.. The Conduit marks the studio's first major foray into original intellectual property. High Voltage recently announced a licensing partnership with Terminal Reality to use the Infernal Engine, which supports Xbox 360, PS3 and PC development. At E3 2009, High Voltage Software unveiled development of two new original IP titles, The Grinder and Gladiator A.D. (working title), both of which received positive attention from the press and gaming community.
Glueck graduated from ISU with a BS in Physics and Math in 1995, and was the first student at ISU to ever receive the Barry M. Goldwater Scholarship. He then pursued his love of physics with an internship at Los Alamos National Laboratory, and graduated from CSU with a MS in Physics in 1997. Anthony was a doctoral candidate at Fermi National Accelerator Laboratory for 18 months, and has co–authored several peer–reviewed articles in different physics journals. Moving from physics to games, Anthony worked in an engineering division of the now defunct Anchor Gaming for 18 months, and in that time completed six titles. He moved to HVS in March of 2001, where he began working on Hunter: The Reckoning coding AI, animation systems, combat systems, and providing tool support. He has held the role of Lead Programmer on numerous projects during his tenure with High Voltage Software.
“For years, I have admired Anthony’s drive for excellence and commitment to quality. I am very excited to have him fill such an important role at the company.” said Kerry J. Ganofsky, C.E.O. and Founder at High Voltage Software, Inc.
“I have worked side by side with Anthony for years. His experience, attention to detail, and management skills make him ideal to fill this position and help us advance our goals of creating the uppermost quality games.” said Eric Nofsinger, Chief Creative Officer at High Voltage Software.
