Many video game studios will motivate their employees in various creative ways. Some offer food and drink. Others candy, soft drinks, junk food and various other supremely bad things for you. Occasionally a really forward thinking studio will offer healthy alternatives to traditional programmer treats.
Here at Victory Square Games we eschew all of these traditional methods to motivate our staff. We use music. Not piped in muzak, or calm and soothing classical. Oh no. We do things differently. Programmers aren't working hard enough? We give Kelly a guitar and he aggressively plays at them until they work harder. It may seem counter productive, but it always gets results. Quickly.
Victory Square Games. Motivation through the threat of louder and more obnoxious guitar. It's what sets us apart.
