Jim Dose een van de programeurs van Ritual Entertainment verlaat het bedrijf en gaat bij Id software werken. When we started Ritual Entertainment 4 years ago, the 6 of us made a pact with each other never to let business affect our personal lives. We have definitely had some tough times during that period and we've had to swallow our pride on more than one occasion. For the most part though, we have managed to stay good friends with each other and we hope that never changes. It is with some sadness and a lot more jealousy that I must report that our friend and chief technologist, Jim Dose' is leaving the company to join Id Software. Jim has had a tremendous effect on how Ritual Entertainment has turned out and he will certainly be missed. We could be upset with Jim but consider these three facts: 1. Jim is leaving the company to join Id Software. 2. Jim is leaving the company to work on the next Doom. 3. Jim is leaving the company to work on the next Doom. Everyone at Ritual wishes Jim the best and we thank him for everything he has done to make Ritual the company it is today. As we see it we aren't losing a part of Ritual, a piece of Ritual is joining Id Software. I personally want to thank Jim for teaching me so much about software development over the last 4 years, it has been a pleasure working with you. Maybe Jim will now get the chance to race his Z3 against Carmack's F50. Mark D Ritual Entertainment ok ik zet mijn geld in op de F50!!
