Don Greenwood Regrets ASL?
Interesting discussion with Don Greenwood on the great podcast Guns, Dice, Butter episode 13.
At about the 30 minute point he says that he really went the wrong direction when he decided to do ASL because games were going the other direction, smaller and quicker playing. And the fact companies were producing more and more games. And he thought this was the best way to compete with what was out there at the time because of it's detail etc.
He lived in the office for 2 years creating it and it never approached making a profit.
Fascinating to think about.
It's a great interview and I get what he means, but it will be interesting to get others' thoughts.
Guns, Dice and Butter is on itunes as well.
