Ken Rolston, previously known as the lead designer on The Elder Scrolls titles Morrowind and Oblivion, has joined Hinterland Games, the team behind survival game The Long Dark. Rolston is a 25 year industry veteran, whose credits extend beyond his work in the video game sphere, to pen and paper RPGs such as Paranoia and RuneQuest. He joined the ill-fated Big Huge Games back in 2007, before moving on to MMORPG developer Turbine in 2012. Now the designer has told IGN about his new Hinterland gig, stating, "I have the experience, the ambition, the hunger. Now I simply have to find something new and valuable to add to this inspired game." Earlier this year, developer Alex Horn gave Gamasutra three RPG design lessons he had learned while working alongside Rolston at Big Huge Games.
