Former Valve writer and VR ambassador Chet Faliszek signs on with the team behind hit VR shooter Arizona Sunshine
Vertigo Games, the VR game studio behind hit VR shooter Arizona Sunshine, today announced that Chet Faliszek has joined its advisory board. Faliszek will be providing the company with strategic counsel as it enters the next phase of growth with an undisclosed VR title currently in development.
Faliszek was at Valve for 12 years where he was co-project lead on the Left 4 Dead series and a writer/developer on numerous franchises at Valve including Half-life, Portal, and CS:GO. As the company launched the VIVE VR system in conjunction with HTC in 2016, his role as Valve’s VR ambassador put him on the forefront of the VR industry.
“Vertigo was one of the first companies I reached out to when we started assembling our initial roster of developers for the Vive reveal. Their ability adapt and work on emerging technologies is amazing. I can't wait until they can start sharing what they are working on and their future plans,” said Falizsek.
“Chet has been invaluable to shaping today’s VR market. He helped numerous companies like Vertigo Games take their first steps in VR and we wouldn’t be where we are now without his guidance,” said Richard Stitselaar, Studio Director at Vertigo Games. “Fast forward 5 years and we are excited to have Chet join our advisory board to help take the company to the next level.”
