title="Permanent Link to How I Game: John Gibson — President, Tripwire Interactive">John Gibson







Guns, guns, and more guns might just be some of John Gibson's favorite things—he's the President of Tripwire Interactive, the studio behind Red Orchestra and Killing Floor.



Name: John Gibson

Occupation: President of Tripwire Interactive

Location: Roswell, GA

Twitter: @RammJaeger



Who are you?



My name is John Gibson and I am the President of Tripwire Interactive. Most people know me from my work on Rising Storm, Red Orchestra 1 and 2, and Killing Floor. I do a lot of business and leadership work here at Tripwire, but I also work on designs and I even get to code quite a bit still. If you love the weapons in Tripwire's games, I've worked on the code for most of them (along with some really talented artists, animators and sound designers). If you hate the weapons in Tripwire's games, well, I guess you can blame me for that too...

"You have fallen into a pit of angry wolverines and are eaten..."

What's in your PC?



My PC runs Windows 7 Ultimate 64 bit with an Intel Core i7-3930k CPU at 3.2GHZ, dual Nvidia Geforce GTX 470's in SLI mode, a Creative Recon3d sound card, dual Asus monitors, and Logitech Z-5500 THX certified speakers.



What's the most interesting part of your setup?



I guess it would be the Logitech 5.1 THX certified 5.1 surround speakers. Because I do a lot of work with the audio and weapons coding in our games I get to run a rocking sound system on my rig. Because of this, when we had our office space built they actually put a lot of extra sound deadening material in the walls to protect the innocent bystanders in the nearby offices. From what I hear though I still drive them nuts with my loud speakers...



Image hunt: Spot the copy of PC Gamer!



What’s on your desk?



Aside from the usual PC peripherals, I keep a copy of Military Small Arms of the 20th Century on my desk most of the time. My wife gave it to me as a gift when I got my first job programming games back in 2003 and I've used it for reference on every game I've worked on since then. On the shelf on the other side of my monitors is a picture of my lovely wife Jessica. That picture reminds of all the love and support she has given me throughout the years of getting Tripwire off the ground and keeping it going. Above that is a picture titled "The Full Armor of God" with a quote from Ephesians 6. That one keeps me focused on my faith.



What are you playing right now?



I'm usually an FPS person through and through, but lately I've really been sucked into Telltales' Walking Dead games. They remind me of the old Choose Your Own Adventure books from when I was a kid. If you never read those books they worked like this:



"You see two doors in front of you. If you choose the left door turn to page 5. If you choose the right door turn to page 10."

I choose the left door and turn to page 10. "You have fallen into a pit of angry wolverines and are eaten..."



"I really enjoy stepping outside myself for a while and being a big kid playing make believe on my computer."

But seriously, I love watching my decisions play out through the episodes. The writing and characters are amazing. Aside from that I really enjoy flight sims and racing games when I can be bothered to hook up my flight yoke or steering wheel and my TrackIR. Honestly though, I spend most of my spare gaming time playing Tripwire games. You would figure I work on them so much that I wouldn't want to, but I really enjoy playing them. Especially Rising Storm, because it started out as a mod created by a different team, it is a lot more fresh to me. I got to come in and play as a fan because I didn't work on it from start to finish. So most days you'll find me on servers leading banzai charges or burning people with flamethrowers.



 



What’s your favorite game and why?



My favorite game in the past few years was Mass Effect. The game really sucked me in with its storytelling and universe. If you go way back, the original Deus Ex is probably my favorite game of all time. If you go way, way back I really loved the original Doom so much that my band named one of our songs "Knee Deep in the Dead."



Why do you game?



I game because it allows me to have experiences that I could never have in everyday life. Whether it is storming the beaches of Iwo Jima or unraveling the secrets of a sci-fi universe, I really enjoy stepping outside myself for a while and being a big kid playing make believe on my computer.

Killing Floor's Summer Sideshow Event is Now Live! Play new objectives mode, new maps and new mod tools in this FREE update!

Plus, Play the full game for free until July 11th!
Click [url]Here to download and start playing. Must have Steam installed.
Discount ends July 11th at 10am pacific.

Shacknews - Alice O'Connor

Summer has now truly begun, with the launch of Killing Floor's latest seasonal event. The free Summer Sideshow: Pier of Pain update introduces another map of steampunk carnival carnage, Steamland, which is the first of Tripwire's new Objective Mode maps. Oh, and the survival shooter is free for everyone to play until July 11. Come, join the festivities!

Objective Mode introduces, as you've probably guessed, objectives, allowing for maps more complex than simply "kill all the monsters and don't die". Pier of Pain will have you repairing power boxes to open the fairground's gates, escorting Ringmaster Lockheart, and more. Also, as you'd hope, it's filled with little carnival games to play on the side.

Earning all the Summer Sideshow achievements will unlock new character Steampunk Mrs. Foster.

Tripwire's also selling a new DLC pack of four steampunk weapons made by the community, including a steam musket and absurd shotgun. It'll usually cost $7.99, but has launched at $3.99 because hey, Killing Floor and all its DLC are on sale for the event.

Check the Summer Sideshow site for more, and run on over to Steam to start playing while it's free. You can buy Killing Floor to keep for only $3.99 (80% off!) if you take a shine to it, which you may well: it is jolly nice.

Those crazy circus freaks have infested the world of Killing Floor once again for the Summer Sideshow: Pier of Pain event, hosted in Ringmaster Lockheart's Steamland. And this time they've brought a completely new game type with them - Objective Mode. But that's not all! We have a whole pile of extras for you all, for NO money down:

*All new game type: Objective Mode features story driven gameplay with objectives to complete while battling the zeds!
*The new map, Steamland, playable in both the new Objective Mode and Wave Mode!
*Objective Mode added to the Killing Floor SDK, so mappers can now create their own story-based maps.
*New unlockable event character: Steampunk Mrs. Foster! Unlock here during the event while you can!
*Additional achievements for the new game mode and new level.
*Another opportunity to unlock Steampunk Mr. Foster during the event.
*For everyone who owns Rising Storm (http://store.steampowered.com/app/234510) - the Rising Storm Tommy Gun.
*All FREE to everyone who owns the game!


And, so everyone who doesn't own the game can try the new mode, Killing Floor will be available to download and play, for NO money (that is f-r-e-e), from 4th July through to 11th July. That is a whole week to try it out. And, to encourage everyone even further, the game will be on sale during the period of the free week, at an 80% discount.

But wait! There's more! We are also bringing you a new DLC character, to keep the original Mr. Foster company - Mrs. Foster! Plus a second Gold Weapons Pack for all those who like their weapons blinged out. And as if that wasn't enough - a Steampunk-themed Community Weapons Pack will also be available, to match with the whole Steampunk theme of the Summer Event.
Remember, you can only unlock Mr and Mrs Foster during the Summer Sideshow event - so don't wait! If that is all a lot to take in at one go take a look at the event web page: http://summer2013.killingfloorthegame.com.

Anyone smell a new mapping contest in the works? Time to dust off all those great "story mode" ideas?

title="Permanent Link to Killing Floor Pier of Pain event adds new mode, map, and weapons, first gameplay video inside">KFO_001_wLogo







Tripwire continues to create reasons to hop back into its four-year old co-op shooter. After bestowing a low-grav moon base map last Christmas, Killing Floor kicks off a new holiday event tomorrow, the Summer Sideshow Pier of Pain, bringing with it the first new mode since it released.



“Objective Mode” layers tasks like VIP escort and item retrieval atop Killing Floor’s standard, wave-based monster killing. The mode is initially playable on Steamland, a new map, but Tripwire is also including mod tools in the Pier of Pain update for the game’s community to create more Objective Mode maps. Tripwire invited me to an exclusive playtest of the map earlier today, shown in the video above.



Killing Floor will be free to play for a week beginning July 4. New weapons and skins are also packaged in the update as unlockables or DLC, shown below.



Community Steampunk Weapon Pack



The Orca Bomb Propeller - The Orca Bomb Propeller tosses little delayed explosive bombs. Good for those bank shots!

Multichamber ZED Thrower - A steam-powered lead launching auto shotgun, with a secondary steam discharge that will knock enemies away!

Single Piston Longmusket - A finely crafted long rifle from the Victorian era fitted with telescopic aiming optics.

Dr. T's Lead Delivery System - Thy weapon is before you. May it's drum beat a sound of terrible fear into your enemies.





Golden Gun Weapon Pack 2



Golden Tiger-Striped Hand Cannons

Golden Chainsaw

Golden Flamethrower

Golden AA12
