About Curious Fate
Creator Jason Shields inadvertently fell into AAA video game development when sending his first indie game around to various developers and publishers, looking for help in finishing and releasing it. Gearbox Software was so impressed with the submission that they offered Jason a job. 13 years later, Jason still works at Gearbox Software, primarily as a UI, Mission, and Level Designer on the “Borderlands” series. But the indie spirit does not die so easily. Jason’s indie band The Capsules has recently released its fifth studio album. And most importantly, Jason keeps fueling his indie-heart by continuing the journey set out all those years ago – deveoping the ambitious indie Strategy RPG called Absolut Tactics.
