Darwinia Creator Slams Publishers

Upon winning the $20,000 Seumas McNally Grand Prize at the 2006 Independent Games Festival, one of the creators of Darwinia said, “We didn’t take money from publishers because we didn’t want publishers to fuck with our game.” This statement resulted in a round deafening applause from all of the audience in attendance at the show. The audience was of course mostly consisted of groups of other developers so you would expect such a response but it is still nice to see people standing up for what they believe in and try to make a quality product without getting there hand forced with products been rushed out the door before they’re ready.
