Deep Silver Distributing Wasteland 2

Deep Silver and inXile Entertainment announce a deal whereby inXile's Wasteland 2 will be distributed worldwide by Deep Silver, and the publisher will also assist in QA testing and localization of the role-playing game. "This is a perfect opportunity for inXile: it allows us to continue to focus all of our energy and money into the creative aspects of the game while letting Deep Silver take our game outside of the pure digital space. This has the added bonus of allowing us to spend more of the Kickstarter funds on development while continue to retain all ownership and control," says Brian Fargo, CEO inXile Entertainment. "Iíve known the people at Deep Silver for many years and they have always been a first rate organization to deal with."

vaudeville circus act mentality

LOL! Well, I recall another discussion about publishers and I said not so many nice words about them. When I said those things, though, I made it clear that it was because the publisher ended up holding most of the power while being able to deflect a considerable amount of the blame. That's not the case here...inXile holds the cards and would be liable for a failed product. In other words, how it should be.

Honestly I don't disagree, however we wouldn't have the industry we have today if it weren't for publishers putting up the funds to create this industry in the first place.

Yes we're moving away from the traditional way to get games made and distributed with Steam's Greenlight and Kickstarter and the like, and that's all well and good, I for one can't wait for Shadowrun Returns, something I was more than happy to back.

However certain people have this habit of demonizing publishers just for the sake of it. I'm not saying you're one of those people but I see it enough on a daily basis from the usual suspects that it gets old after awhile reading the same butthurt day in day out.
