Samool

Thanks!

Hi everyone,

 

I'll be stepping down from my post as a Product Manager of Wurm Online, due to a pileup of personal issues and health problems. It has been a great adventure and I've thoroughly enjoyed working on the game I've played and loved for over a decade, but it's time someone else takes the lead as I'm not fit at the moment to do it properly.

 

There's no better person to carry this game further than Keenan so I'm certain it'll turn out great with him at the helm - you can expect a development update post from him shortly :) 

 

 

Thanks for the chance, and see you around Wurm!
Samool

It was wonderful to work with you Samool, and I hope things start working towards an up-and-up. Keenan is a great choice in the passing of the reins, and will have much support from myself and other staff members in his new role. You just focus on getting better!

Won the RL battles as fast as possible and hopefully with little effort!

It was really the best experience for me all the time when you were involved in strange glitch hunting ingame and I really hope we'll see you around yet.

Thanks for all your work, Samool. You have been an outstanding asset to both Wurm and to us players. I will never forget how you patiently explained to me that contrary to my knee jerk reaction, the 3D person camera in Wurm will not take away from "that Wurm feeling". And you were right. Expertly done! 😀

 

So many other memories too. This game benefited greatly from you at the helm, so thanks for your hard work and see you in game!

Samool, on behalf of everyone at Wurm, I want to say thank you. This game wouldn't be what it is today without you. 

 

Many of you might not know this, but years ago, someone else was working part time on the new renderer. Before they could finish it, they got a job elsewhere and had to leave the project unfinished.

 

Finishing that was Samool's first big project. From the launch of the 4.0 client, to the modern renderer, volumetric fog, dye on armour and everything in-between. It has all had Samool's hard work bring it to life. 

 

Mate, I wish you the best in health and life, take care.

Sounds like you've been through a really rough time this past year Samool. So sorry you've had to go through that. What's most important now is to take care of yourself and get better. Thank you for everything that you've done for Wurm. There are too many contributions to even list, but the one that really stands out to me is how Wurm transformed into such a gorgeous game those months before the Steam launch. Wurm has become something we can feel proud to show off thanks to the volumetric lighting, the new UI look and many other things you worked on. I wish you the best of luck and I hope you start to feel better soon!

Samool, I know I have been, at least at times, a harsh critic of some of the changes under your reign, but please know I have always respected and appreciated you, your professionalism, and your dedication to the game through all the hardships that come with the job. Kudos. I wish you nothing but the best in your health, happiness, and general good fortunes. I hope you'll always be able to love and enjoy Wurm. Be well.

 

Keenan, Wurm is waiting...
