MADFINGER Interview: Vojtech Peterek

MADFINGER Interview: Vojtech Peterek


Hello. Can you tell us who you are and what you do at MADFINGER Games?

  • Hello, my name is Vojtech, and I work here as Art Director. 

So how did you get to do something like this? What’s your background?

  • Ever since I was a kid, I always enjoyed playing games, especially Czech AAA games, like Mafia, Vietcong, and Hidden & Dangerous. Playing these absolute classics was great, but I wanted even more - to create them. So I started searching on the internet about how games are made, but all I could find at that time was just a couple of pages with some recommendations on what 3D tools to use and vague descriptions of how the art for games is made. Being a kid that didn't know much about anything, that really didn't help me much, but my interest in games never left me, so after studying art in high school, I gave it a shot and managed to start my career as a junior artist on the Mafia series!

How would you describe your typical day at work?

  • Every day starts with a mug of coffee, and then I go through my emails while drinking it. I need to keep up to speed with ever-changing trends in video game art and also look around for exciting new tools that we could use. I try to help my colleagues get rid of any blockers they might have or, in general, do anything that can make them more creative and efficient. I often review their work and provide feedback, motivation, and direction. When I have some spare time, I also help them design the environments for our new game.

What tools do you mostly use during your work?

  • When it comes to management, I use all the classic Google stuff like documents and sheets, and Targetprocess to keep an eye on our progress. But I really love working with more creative tools like the Unreal Engine, 3ds Max, Photoshop, etc.

What would you say is the most fun part about your job?

  • What I enjoy the most is working with creative people, which is great because MADFINGER is full of them! I'm very interested in creating video game environments that can tell an in-depth story. I also like managing the team, handling outsourcing, and making sure that everybody is relaxed.

Do you play any games? If so, which ones would you say are your favorite, both old and new?

  • Currently, I'm playing Frostpunk, which is something very different from what I usually play, but it's great! In the past year, I probably enjoyed Ghost of Tsushima the most, but overall my favorite genre is action-adventure games.

And what about your time outside the studio? Any hobbies or other activities?

  • I love reading, especially biographies and self-help books. I still enjoy playing games, hanging out with friends, and playing with RC models, but mostly I have fun with my kids, which takes up probably 99% of my free time. :)

Thanks for the interview!

  • Merry Christmas!
