Notable PC game designer Doug Church has joined Valve, the company confirmed yesterday. Gamasutra reports that according to marketing VP Doug Lombardi, Church started at the company a couple of weeks ago. Lombardi was unable to say which, if any, project Church has been assigned to.

Church has a long resume from the classic days of PC gaming, including work on the Thief, System Shock, and Ultima series. He moved on to Eidos as a technical director, then went to EA's Los Angeles office where he worked on the now-canceled Spielberg project.
