Chris Taylor on GPG, Wildman, and Publishers

An interview on Eurogamer talks with Gas Powered Games boss Chris Taylor about Wildman, layoffs at GPG, and what the future holds, further clarifying what lead the company to the precipice. He describes the kind of financing the game will ultimately require and why the Kickstarter is for less than that, how they have brought back some key people, and more. He also has some choice words for game publishers, saying one of the company's burdens has been 11th hour game cancellations by publishers, saying one of these came a month ahead of beta testing.

The games industry sounds more and more like a HORRIBLE place to work, unless you are somehow independently wealthy and can make any project you want without fear.

This is more of an example of the humanity-wide problem of clueless managers in charge of technical projects that they have no real understanding of, most importantly the time required to actually put something together that isn't complete garbage.

Chris Taylor seems like a nice guy who is just going to continually get chewed up by soulless managers/publishers. Unfortunately I don't like the very little shown about Wildman so far, it seems like exactly the wrong time to do any sort of ARPG no matter what other genres it includes. I don't plan on contributing to the Kickstarter at this point.
