Mostly for heskey, but feel free to read anyway:
Look, I get it you're angry as fuck about the OKAM fiasko. I'm not even saying you're wrong, if it meant so much to you, I guess it feels like something very dear to you died, as it did for many of us.
The simple and complicated reality is that we were passionate, but young and naive and inexperienced, and I made many passionate, naive and inexperienced, and possibly downright stupid decisions that ultimately culminated in OKAMs downfall and nearly the end of our story in this industry. I'm not proud of that, but it was the most valuable experience I've ever received, but I, like you, wish it wouldn't have come at a price like this. Feel free to call me a fucking idiot. I often think about at what point should I have done what differently to have avoided what happened.
What you call "intransparency" is one of the results of this, we don't talk about stuff we're doing anymore unless we're certain we can pull it off. Or, to be more exact, we'll talk about it after we've pulled it off.
We're not here looking for money, or your blessing. We're looking for someone passionate, but possibly young and naive and inexperienced, who wants to work on fucking video games. Who wants to really get into the core of it and understand how it all works. Who has dreams of making games because he thinks that's what he should do with his life. Because we can show him now, not everything, but a little bit, about how this whole thing works. And because I wish someone would have shown that to me.
Amod want to move this into the already made, correctly titled thread?
