Hammers Give Back to the Community at the San Francisco Food Bank

01/24/2013

At Sledgehammer Games, we’re dedicated to making an impact within the video game community, as well as the community around us. On Tuesday, January 22nd we were given the opportunity by the SF Food Bank to donate our time to help feed those in need in the Bay Area. The SF Food Bank has a dedicated staff of 120 employees, 25,000 volunteers annually, and produces an impressive 100,000 meals per day. Our group was responsible for boxing up carrots, pears and beans and loading them on pallets to be distributed all over the Bay Area. Sledgehammer Games is just one of the many organizations that donate time every year to their efforts of feeding the less fortunate, and we’re extremely proud of the group of employees that donated their time this week.

For more information on the SF Food Bank and to find out how you can help, please visit their site:http://www.sffoodbank.org

Glen Schofield and Michael Condrey toasted the team with a salute to the studio, Call of Duty, and the successes of 2012.  Be sure to check out the full gallery of our party images on our Facebook page, and follow us on Twitter for everything happening at Sledgehammer Games.

The Sledgehammer Games Challenge Coin

12/13/2012

I had the opportunity to join a Navy Seal operator on a SWAT shoot house exercise recently. The experience was incredible. Participating in the drills was nothing short of exhilarating. At the conclusion, I was awarded a Navy Seal challenge coin for scoring the highest marks on the "El Presidente" hostage scenario. The recognition from a top tier Seal, as well as the coin itself, was really meaningful. 

For those not familiar with the history of challenge coins, they originated during the First World War, and were given to the pilots by their lieutenant as a symbol of strength and unity to be carried at all times. More information on the history of Challenge Coins can be found here.

The military challenge coin is a rich tradition that spoke directly to our studio core values. Each division's coin is different, carries its own traditions, and uniquely describes the pride and respect that is part of the group it represents. It inspired us to create a Sledgehammer Games challenge coin for our developers, and the coin is awarded to each Hammer as a part of their welcome to our studio team.

The coin face is emblazoned with our hammer, on a background that captures the beauty of our San Francisco based home. The inscription on the reverse-side of the coin is as follows:

“Strive for excellence. Treat employees as family. Be the best by hiring the best. World-class development processes. Open, honest, and transparent. Everyone is a game maker. Work hard, play hard. We care more.”
