A sad thing happened this past week. EA shut down the original Maxis Emeryville.
As the news came in, a flurry of memories shot through my head, and my heart felt broken. I remember every face, every memory, and emotion like it was yesterday. Maxis and everyone a part of Maxis was like one big family. I couldn’t have felt more lucky to have played a small part in this company, and I’m happy to have met so many great and talented people that I can call friends.
It isn’t easy to say goodbye, but hopefully the future will be bright and accepting for all involved.
Maxis, you will always be close to my heart,
