Leonard Boyarsky joins fellow Fallout creator and Troika Games co-founder Tim Cain at studio

Lead Fallout and Diablo III designer moves to Obsidian

Obsidian Entertainment is now the home to two of the guiding forces behind the original Fallout.

Leonard Boyarsky is perhaps best known as the art director who introduced Fallout’s iconic Vault Boy icons while working at Interplay Entertainment in the mid-1990s.

He later left to form Vampire: The Masquerade – Bloodlines developer Troika Games with fellow Fallout creative Tim Cain, who is now also at Obsidian.

For the last decade, Boyarsky has been at Blizzard, working as lead world designer on RPG Diablo III.

He confirmed his move to Obsidian in a Facebook post, while Cain uploaded a picture of the pair reunited at the developer’s office, joking: “New co-worker. Hope he doesn’t talk too much.” (via RPG Codex)

As well as RPGs South Park: The Stick of Truth and Pillars of Eternity, Obsidian also created 2010’s Fallout: New Vegas.
