Livelock: Meet Tuque - Alexandre Hétu
June 16, 2016


Hello World,

 

My name is Alexandre Hétu and I am the PS4 Lead Programmer for Livelock. 

 
Growing up, what were your favorite games?

Mario, Zelda, Metroid, Doom, X-Com (the original), Ultima7, SimCity, Tomb Raider, and Duke Nukem 3D.


What are a few of your favorite games from the last few years?

Demon's Souls. 


What made you want to become a developers/work in the gaming industry?

As a kid I dreamt of drawing comic books when I grew up. Then one day, around age 13 or 14, I witnessed Doom running on a PC. I worked two summers and eventually bought my first computer. Soon after that during high-school I made friends with a computer genius who introduced me to programming and demo coding and that was it, I got hooked on graphics programming and all things related to game programming. 

 

What would you be doing if you weren't working on Livelock?

I would probably just be bored if i wasn't working on Livelock. 

 

Making a new title with a fresh studio, what has been the most exciting or terrifying moment?

Nothing too terrifying. Working with a smaller team creates opportunities to work on so many more things than you normally would in a bigger studio. It is much more challenging, but in a good way. 

 

Everyone needs a break from work, are there any office pastimes that you partake in (i.e. gaming, board games, tcgs, etc.)?

Unfortunately, some of us have a love/hate relationship with NHL 2016.

 

What other hobbies or interests do you have other than gaming?

Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, programming, and board gaming.

 

Would you be willing to undergo the mind upload? If so, would you be a capital Intellect or a rogue cluster? 

Definitely a Rogue Cluster. 



The Livelock process will continue on our ForumsFacebook and Twitter until its release later in 2016. Follow us for exclusive content including the latest news, developer chats, concept art, and more.
