Interview with Kingdom Conquest II’s Server Programmer

Most of the time we hear about designers, artists, and writers of games as they are the ones who dream up the worlds that we spend a lot of our time in. However, it’s always important to remember that all these dreams would never become reality without the dedicated efforts of the engineers behind the scenes. So, in the hopes of helping you all understand what kind of challenge this is, we sat down with Takuya Yamazaki, the Server Programmer on Kingdom Conquest II, to hear what he has to say about his profession! Cool Fact: He is also the creator of Super Monkey Ball’s AiAi!

Interview Preview

1. Thanks for joining us! Before we dive in to what you do for SEGA, can you introduce yourself and tell us a little bit about what you do on Kingdom Conquest II?
I am in charge of creating the game logic and designing the server infrastructure for KCII. I’ve always wanted to work in the game industry, so my dreams really did come true.

2. Engineers are always in high demand at tech-based companies, and gaming companies are no exception. Did you always want to work in games?
Yep, sure. I always wanted to be a game programmer since I was in elementary school. At the time, I made a game using the Z-80 Assembler language on an 8-bit PC, and submitted it to a magazine. You could say that I’ve been a programmer for over 30 years!

3. What kind of games have you worked on in the past? How did you come to work on Kingdom Conquest II?
