Fan site MMO Fallout has an interesting interview with Stephen Calender
that's worth a read. Who's Stephen Calender? He's a Flash developer who was front and center for the brouhaha that went down when The LEGO Group acquired the LEGO Universe
MMO from NetDevil
(putting many NetDevil programmers out of work in the process).
The interview is a wide-ranging and lengthy affair, and it features discussion on Gazillion's
relationship with NetDevil, a blurb about the ill-fated Auto Assault
, and of course, the bulk of the piece that focuses on the past and future of LEGO Universe
. For all of the aspiring game devs in the audience, Calender also spends quite a bit of time talking about selling yourself in an increasingly competitive industry.
