Kudos to Eurogamer! I read this article over Free Radical earlier today and I wanted to share it on my blog. It chronicles Free Radical Design, the UK-based developer most known for the TimeSplitters series. Last generation, they were one of my absolute favorite developers and I played the crap out of TimeSplitters 2 and TimeSplitters: Future Perfect.
Although it was later revealed they had multiple games under wraps for the now-current generation of consoles, Haze eventually put them under, or so it was assumed. What I learned from this lengthy article, was it wasn’t just Haze that forced them into administration (bankruptcy). This article also shed a great deal of light on how an independent developer works, and how hard it can be at times. A very informative read that I highly recommend.
