David Gaider, who wrote for some of BioWare’s biggest series for more than 17 years, has moved across to Beamdog.
Gaider departed BioWare in late January after a prolific writing career across franchises including Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic, Neverwinter Nights and Dragon Age.
His first role was as a designer on Baldur’s Gate 2: Shadows of Amn in 1999.
That legacy will serve him well as he now joins Beamdog, the developer behind Baldur’s Gate: Enhanced Edition, as creative director.
“Originally we advertised for the position of senior writer, but when David contacted Trent about the position, we upgraded the role,” Beamdog writer Amber Scott posted on the studio’s blog.
“He brings 17 years of experience to our little team and we couldn’t be happier to work with him. David will lead the writing team and direct new creative endeavours for the company.”
