BioWare founders to be honoured at GDC

Mass Effect 3 580x300

After enduring a tumultuous 18 months, life is about to get just a little more pleasant for BioWare founders Dr Ray Muzyka and Dr Greg Zeschuk. The perceived failure of Star Wars: The Old Republic and the controversy surrounding the conclusion to the Mass Effect trilogy will no doubt seem worlds away when the two men take to the stage to accept their lifetime achievement gongs at this year’s Game Developer’s Choice Awards. The ceremony will take place on 27th March at the Game Developer’s Conference in San Francisco.

Muzyka and Zeschuk founded BioWare, along with Augustine Yip, in 1995 and their contribution to the medium began with a mech action game called Shattered Steel. It wasn’t long, though, before they settled into their niche, producing a string of critically acclaimed RPGs, including Baldur’s Gate, Neverwinter Nights and Dragon Age.

The men known throughout the gaming world as The BioWare Doctors recently retired from the company, which is now owned by EA. Muzyka has expressed a desire to focus on charitable endeavours, while Zeschuk is working on web series about beer (no, seriously).
