Humans of Gaming 142 | Andrien Gbinigie of Ubisoft on the Power of Social Media


About This Episode

Andrien Gbinigie of Ubisoft joins us this week to talk about his dream of working on Assassin’s Creed ever since he ran atop the roofs in Venice in Assassin’s Creed 2. Born and raised in Nigeria till the age of 14, Andrien continued his education in London (where he became a Manchester United fan much to Drew’s dismay with his love of Arsenal) and realized his dream by gaining Ubisoft’s attention by producing his own fan made Assassin’s Creed podcast.

Nigeria is very religious country with Andrien growing up in a Christian household with regular church attendance. Drew and Chris talk to him about his current perspective of Christianity along with the lessons they have learned navigating the ever escalating tensions on social media, how to manage them, enforce self-discipline, and realize it may not really be all that important.
