This week's Inside the Vault is with none other than Obsidian's superhero in residence and Fallout: New Vegas senior producer, Larry Liberty. With a name like that, he has to be a superhero, right? Anyway, here are the highlights:

What’s your job at Obsidian?

Put simply, I manage the production of Fallout: New Vegas. In practice, that means managing a small team of producers that in turn manage the five cross-discipline teams of developers responsible for creating the game. [We have broken the team into smaller sub-teams, each focused on a specific goal each milestone. Incidentally, these teams are all named after items found in the Fallout universe: Team Buffout, Fancy(lads), Mentats, Nuka, and Psycho.] I manage two of the teams myself and coordinate with the rest of my production crew in a relatively organic manner. My primary job is to see that Josh’s [Josh Sawyer, Project Director/Lead Designer] vision is executed to the fullest extent possible while staying within scope.


Any fun facts you’d like to share about Obsidian?

All of the owners remain involved in the day-to-day development of games, something that does not happen all that often once a company reaches a certain size. Perhaps as a result of this, there is just about nothing in the way of political intrigue, very refreshing and unheard of in a game company with well over 100 employees.


Are you aware you have the best name of all time?

Thank you. I do get my share of superhero jokes. I have my dad and granddad to thank for that, since I am the third.
