Haha! I didn't know about the $1 Million - I didn't read that far into it. You have to be kidding me! $1.8 Million for a 2D pixel top down ARPG that looks like it came directly from 1989? NO wonder why nothing got done at SOE and was bleeding cash. I knew things were ridiculous over there before Dyabreak bought them, but holy cats if this is an example of the amount of money bloat they were siphoning from SOE at the time, it's no wonder they went belly up on everything.
He's got the right people working on it IMO.. Hunley is a solid TD, Trost will be a good CD, and Barker as UI engineer is interesting, but I'm sure he can do work on design as well. I think they can make it work.. It's an interesting idea to me.
