Derek,

I just finished watching the video interview with GameTailers


Just wanted to say "awesome", towards the end the video (around 7:28 clip) your comment towards publishers and indies hit home (as an indie dev - not games but more applications/tools) i was able to relate to that statement whole hearted!

Great interview, unfortunately most folks that do not code or have developed large scale applications/games will never fully understand your sentiments.

Kudos!

I've dealt with publishers since back in the eighties and right through the nineties. Even when I stopped dealing with them once it was possible to sell direct, I still get to hear all the horror stories that still go on today in the industry. Yet most are alarmed that the publishing side of the industry is rapidly collapsing.
Game developers are just human beings who happen to make games for a living. If you want to hold us up to higher standards of conduct, then go ahead...but don't be surprised if we don't uphold them.
