WINTER PARK, FL: August 15, 2008 – Full Sail University (www.fullsail.edu) is proud to recognize Game Design and Development graduate Shaun McCabe, who has recently been named Production Director for the North Carolina studio of Insomniac Games.
Previously a member of Insomniac’s Burbank California studio, McCabe worked for five years on such notable projects as Ratchet & Clank: Up Your Arsenal, Ratchet: Deadlocked, and Resistance: Fall of Man as a sound programmer. In 2007, he obtained the position of lead game play programmer for Ratchet & Clank: Future Tools of Destruction and then later on Resistance 2. These transitions allowed McCabe to gain the experience in the industry to now accept the Production Director role at the North Carolina studio.
After graduating from Full Sail, McCabe was employed at Interplay Entertainment Corp. where he worked as a junior engine programmer. His contributions helped to create such well known titles as Baldur’s Gate: Dark Alliance, Giants: Citizen Kabuto and Run Like Hell for the popular gaming systems Xbox and Playstation 2.
