Mike Dussault leaves Monolith

Jason Hall, CEO of Monolith, announced in his .plan that Mike Dussault has left Monolith for Valve. Mike was the chief architect behind the LithTech engine, and I'm sure his expertise will be missed.

As pointed out over on the shack, Mike is now adding his graphics engine expertise to that of Jason Zelsnack, Charlie Brown, and Gary McTaggert. That's a HECK of a lot of engine talent. Methinks Valve is gonna become another id at this rate.

A.T. Hun comments: I emailed Mike Dussault a couple of times with Shogo-related questions when I was running The Haus of Shogo. He was always prompt with his responses, even though I'm sure he was quite busy. Hmm. John Jack leaves Lith and now their head engine monkey leaves too. Hmm. It certainly isn't going to help Monolith's future titles much, which is sad considering how quickly they dropped Shogo and Blood 2.
