19-Year-Old Made 25-Hour Skyrim Mod To Apply For A Job at Bethesda

19 year-old Alexander J. Velicky wanted to work for Bethesda so much that he spent 2,000 hours to create an Elder Scrolls: Skyrim mod called Falskaar as part of his application.

During an interview with PC Gamer, the high school graduate Velicky said that he spent 2,000 hours over a span of a year making the 25-hour-long mod as a way of showing off his skills. The mod also features a landscape one-third the size of the original game's continent of Skyrim, new characters, new quests, and new voices.

According to Velicky, more than 100 people contributed to the voices and ideas of Falsakaar, though he said that "all content was implemented, written, and developed" by him. He also said that Bethesda, the developer and publisher of the Elder Scrolls franchise, is aware of his mod, though no official statement was made by the company. "The best way to show Bethesda Game Studios that I want a job there and should be hired is to create content that meets the standards of their incredible development team," he said.
