Splash Damage boss Paul Wedgwood said at Game Horizon this week that he’s got “rules of engagement” about how he runs the company. We’re assuming he was holding a riding crop when he delivered his speech.

“Our rules of engagement for the business were don’t work on movie licenses, don’t work on ports, don’t do work for hire, and find a big brother to nurture us in those early years,” he said.

“That’s how you get focus,” Wedgwood added. “We made a decision to shamelessly pursue critical acclaim for our games and we do that by focusing all our effort on making sure the stuff we do is better than the stuff we did.”

Splash Damage is currently hard at work on Bethesda’s Brink, due out early next year. More on Gama.
