Oddworld Dev on EA: “F--k That Business”
Posted on Wednesday, March 26 @ 07:05:48 PST by Alex_Osborn
Oddworld Inhabitants co-founder Lorne Lanning isn't interested in working with big publishers like Electronic Arts ever again.
Speaking to VG247, Lanning made it clear why his upcoming game Oddworld: New 'n' Tasty would be published by Oddworld Inhabitants itself rather than a larger company, painting big-name corporations in a particularly negative light.
F--k that business. I don’t want to play with that business, because it was a losing business. I just don’t want to go back and play the old [publisher] game. I’d rather not make games than go f--king be a slave for public companies who care more about their shareholders than they do about their customers.Lanning also expressed his frustration in seeing the media misrepresent the studio's upcoming title, Oddworld: New 'n' Tasty, which isn't merely an HD remake. “We still see press calling it an HD remake, and it’s not a f--king HD remake,” he said. Instead, the game has be rebuilt from the ground up and is much more than just a high-definition port of a classic game.
Mr. Lanning, I promise I won't make that mistake ever again.
