I’m delighted to introduce Olly, our new community manager!
Olly is known as __Stark__ on Playfire and Stark464 on the Green Man Gaming Community, and he’s in charge of all things community. He’ll be getting stuck in to make sure your voices are heard, looking for the best posts, the greatest videos and the funniest streams. He’ll also be working closely with the mods to make the Green Man Gaming Community one of the friendliest communities around – just like Playfire.
Find out more about him in the first Green Man Gaming team profile. We'll be introducing other members of the Green Man Gaming team ahead of the community launch as well!
Where else have you worked in the gaming industry?
Infernum Games, a publisher in Berlin, Germany. I’ve also done freelance work for Riot Games.
When are community members likely to come into contact with you?
On the buzz feed, in the blog comments, on the game pages – anywhere where the community is!
What platform do you usually game on?
PC mostly, sometimes PS4.
What is your favourite game of all time?
Skies of Arcadia, an absolutely brilliant JRPG originally on the Dreamcast.
What other types of games do you usually play?
I play MOBAs regularly, and I like FPSs, strategy and atmospheric games.
What other hobbies do you have outside of gaming?
I’m a certified Dungeon Master – I love tabletop pen and paper roleplaying games! I’m a big coffee drinker, and I love going to see the latest Marvel or Star Wars films in IMAX on opening nights.
What feature of the new community are you most looking forward to?
The activity and progress tracking systems look really cool. I do like to check out my friends’ gaming habits, and the level of detail is great.
Why is the community important to you?
I think our community is important because our members are invaluable at helping the platform grow in the right way through feedback and opinions. The community also promotes the social side of games, which is one of the most important aspects of it as an activity.
Welcome to the community, __Stark__!
