Ryan Winzen, developer of the World of Starcraft mod for Starcraft II, has come to fame recently for his creation as well as his potential job offers.
World of Starcraft is exactly what it sounds like. World of Warcraft meets Starcraft. It is a mod for Starcraft II that is programmed in such a way to give it online capabilities, character design, and what not all in a similar fashion to World of Warcraft.
After Ryan Winzen's Youtube video went viral and garnered much attention, WoW and Starcraft publisher Activision/Blizzard sent a Cease and Desist letter via the original video getting removed from Youtube for DMCA infringement. However, this cloud comes with a silver lining. Riot Games, whose claim to fame is League of Legends, offered Ryan a job offer because of the World of Starcraft mod.
The plot thickened even more when Blizzard said the whole cease and desist letter was "just a misunderstanding" and that they actually enjoy the fact that the modding tools they released for SCII were used. They were so happy about it, in fact, that they are even looking into hiring him.
In semi-related news and jumping on the band-wagon, Halo game designer Bungie might be producing an online game that would be a WoW in space.
