Quick quotes: McNamara on the “long, painful process” of closing Team Bondi

By Stephany Nunneley, Tuesday, 3 January 2012 19:50 GMT

“It was a long, painful process, but making games is like making films in that it’s a marathon, not a sprint – and some people come into the process not knowing that – I’d love to spend more time at home with my family and kids. We run things differently now – we have flexi-hours, for example. But everybody has their view on who’s the worst boss in the world, and maybe that’s me. I’ve read some amazing things about Steve Jobs in his biography, and I’ve never seen him get as vilified any way as much as I have. Sam Peckinpah [’70s film director] fired [plenty of] people off one movie, and nobody said a thing. Werner Herzog pulled a gun on Klaus Kinski to get him to finish a movie! Obviously I don’t compare myself to any of those people…” – Team Bondi boss Brendan McNamara to OPM.
