A former intern at Sony Santa Monica says his work on God of Struggle Ragnarök has fallen out of favor.
Composer Jessica Mao shared her story on Twitter, stating that she’s “engaged on the modifying/modifying/govt of the Freya chase scene” and “Thor boss battle music”.
Nevertheless, regardless of his contribution, Mao mentioned his identify was not included within the sport’s ending credit as a result of his contribution to Ragnarök didn’t meet the “minimal standards” (though Mao was undecided what “this criterion” is likely to be).
“Sadly, my identify is just not within the credit and apparently can’t be added to a patch replace,” Mao wrote (thanks, PushSqure). “I used to be informed that my contribution to the sport needed to meet some ‘minimal standards’ to be revered… It was extremely irritating and discouraging for me to seek out out, and I might hate for anybody else to expertise that.”
He continued: “Recreation builders, please give credit score to EVERYONE concerned within the improvement of a sport. It simply is smart.”
You higher get this out earlier than Twitter dies.
I am so joyful to see so many individuals having fun with God of Struggle Ragnarök! I labored on the modifying/modifying/implementation of the Freya chase scene and Thor boss battle music. You may hear a bit of the soundtrack of every scene on this video!

In response to Mao’s publish, Sony Santa Monica senior audio technical designer Sean LaValle mentioned he was “saddened by this” and acknowledged that “anybody who contributes to a mission needs to be revered”.
Whereas LaValle mentioned “it actually could also be too late” to rectify the state of affairs, he assured Mao that he would “positively ask about it”.
I am so sorry to listen to that, Jessica! I completely agree that anybody who contributes to a mission needs to be credited.
It is likely to be actually late however I’ll positively ask this.
