I saw a really fascinating article online where Bill Roper of Flagship Studios’ fame talked about the demise of his company. It was a really fascinating and honest look on the inside of a business.
It’s also a perfect example of why I wanted to write and edit my book about business and legal issues. Here’s a competent developer who obviously was able to create a successful game as he did previously at Blizzard, but where not doing the proper business planning lead to a business failure.
(Personal to Bill Roper: contact me if you want to write a chapter for the next edition of the book. ;)
No particular challenge this weekend, but do read that article. A few of my own thoughts after the jump.
