Hammer of the Month | May Winner


And the winner for the first ever Sledgehammer Games Hammer of the Month Contest is….

 Stephen (Tipsy)


 We had a ton of entries in this month’s competition.  It was hard to pick a winner.  Thanks to all who sent in their unique, crazy, and many times inappropriate submissions! 

 “Why is my setup the best gaming set up?”  Stephen says. “The surround sound means that you're always aware of people trying to sneak around in FPS games and it’s especially helpful in Modern Warfare 2 to combat those using ninja and/or trying to sneak around.  Couple this with the big unit devoid of distractions and a big TV makes for quite an immersive gaming experience. Plus the sofas are mega comfy to say the least!”  It also didn’t hurt that Stephen sent me a giant box of cash and a poem titled “Ode to Sledgehammer Games”

 Stephen’s prize from the Tool Box of Chaos will be in the mail real soon.  Maybe he’ll do a prize unboxing for everyone!

UPDATE! (6/10/2011)

Stephen has posted an unboxing video.  Check it out: http://media.photobucket.com/image/recent/woodpure100/ae2a20fb.mp4

Studio Culture | Basketball


Sledgehammer Games is currently working hard at creating a fantastic Call of Duty experience.  While all of our time is devoted to our particular project, we sometimes need to take a break to gain back that mental focus. 

Here at Sledgehammer, some of the crew partakes in playing basketball at the local community center during lunch hour. 

“Playing ball is a great way to not only build up your endurance and conditioning, but it’s also a fun way to get out and interact with some of the people here at work.” says Engineer David Kuo.  “When you’re running up and down the court for an hour or so, you don’t really realize what a great workout you’ve gotten until it’s all said and done.” 

Sledgehammer Games prides themselves as being not just a first-class game developer, but also a well-knitted family that embraces the experiences we have during the development process.  Our culture expands into a variety of events including sports.  So as time progresses, we look to expand on our growing culture by giving you an inside look in on some of the activities and happenings involved with the Sledgehammer Family.

Don’t forget, our first Hammer of the Month Contest will be announced in May on our Facebook!
