News of last week's shakeup
of the Alganon
team has been sparking a lot of talk in the gaming community, and the fans aren't the only ones with something to say. Derek Smart
is taking Alganon
back to the drawing board in a big way, but he's still finding time to maintain his policy of very open communication: "The fact is that in our industry, the less you say, the more people will fill in the blanks for you."
You're not going to find many blanks to fill in here. Gamasutra reported the news Monday
, and Smart posted some clarifications to the story in the comments section. He had quite a bit to say over the next 24 hours, and Hue Henry
and Jason Blood
stopped by to add their voices to the conversation as well. The discussion that followed was interesting to say the least, and offered quite a bit of insight into their thoughts on the matter.
The comments section, while long, is well worth a look
, particularly if you're familiar with the participants or a fan of Alganon
