Doug Church, The Game Designer Behind System Shock 1&2, The Thief Series And Deus Ex, Is Now At Valve

News & Rumors Other

The original Deus Ex is widely considered to be one of the greatest games of all time. Same for System Shock 1. And System Shock 2. And the Thief series.

Whoa, I’m detecting some sort of… pattern here.

Doug Church, The Game Designer Behind System Shock 1&2, The Thief Series And Deus Ex, Is Now At Valve

Doug Church is the game designer behind all of these amazing titles. He’s been working on games since the beginning of the 90’s, and he’s worked on far more than the “big three” we mentioned up there.

And it appears he’ll be working on more in the future, for he is now working at Valve!

The news first appeared on Wikipedia on the 10th of March. Chris Remo, the community manager of Irrational Games (a studio that originally spun off from Looking Glass Studios, which is where Doug Church worked for many moons), tweeted about it on his Twitter account, saying: “Doug Church going to Valve is one of the most exciting video game industry moves imaginable.”.

He has since removed the tweet, and a few responses he made to his followers, but Game Informer asked Doug Lombardi for confirmation on this matter, and they got a resounding: “On the record: It’s true.”.

Sounds great! We can’t wait to see what Doug will contribute to Valve’s great games.
