When Bard No.1 meets No.101
It has been 12 months since NeoBards Entertainment was founded in April 2017. On the morning of May 02, 2018, we gave a warm welcome to the No. 101 Bard, Modi LIU, who joined our Tribe as QA Game Tester. (Members of NeoBard Entertainment are referred to as “Bards”).
At 10:00am, as soon as the elevator door opened, all the bards standing together, greeted Modi with High-Fives, cheers and applauds. We know, this gesture would make the new the Bard go “Whoa~ didn’t see that coming..”, but this is the game industry we’re talking about, it’s always full of surprises! At NeoBards, you better get used to being surprised!
Joining NeoBards means lots of high-fives, a round of warm applause, and…answering brain teasers before starting first day at work? Talk about excitement!
Welcome to our Tribe, Bard No.101!
It was time for our Bard #1, NeoBards Founder and CEO Jean-Marc Morel to meet the Bard #101: Modi Liu. He could not have been more proud of all the accomplishment the Bards made in the last 12 months. Growing is never easy, but as the confetti cannons blast off, cameras flash to commemorate this historic moment, we couldn’t help but wonder, when we will get to meet Bard No.201, and maybe someday, No.1001?
The Day You Join NeoBard Tribe, is the Beginning of an Adventure. Would You Like to be the Next?
Food, fun, and lots of sugar; we can definitely taste the sweetness in the growth of our Tribe!
How Modi LIU, Bard No.101, joined the NeoBards Tribe, is an epic story worth telling. When NeoBards first started out and took office in a business center, Modi was working as a Maintenance Engineer for an information hardware company, and used to deliver hardware to various firms. All of the the super powerful high-performance computers the Bards are now using, were assembled and delivered by Modi.
Modi became extremely curious about NeoBards Entertainment, a group of game developer with large demands for computing. After delivering no less than dozens of computers to NeoBards, he couldn’t help to ask “How could I join this company that appears to be full of fun and challenges?”
The reply he received was simple and to the point: “Although you don’t have related work experience, you can always start as a QA.” Shortly after, HR received Modi’s CV, and went through a few interviews, this twenty- nine years-old Bard is now officially part of the Tribe, joining us on the arduous but rewarding journey of game development.
We believe, as all the Bards come from different backgrounds, uprisings, cultures and countries, we are all united by the love of our craft, the storytelling and the deep understanding that hard work and quality will always triumph.
