“I think that’s the question all the retailers are asking themselves. Part of what’s exciting as a game developer is that it’s easier and easier for us to make things and get them right out into the hands of people. There aren’t a lot of hoops we have to jump through or a lot of people we have to talk to. If you’re going to put an app up on the app store, a guy can do that in a garage. In a way it reminds me of the old days when it was just one of us making a game and you’d put it on a bulletin board and people would see it and download it. We’ve kind of gone back to the future.” – Ed Fries to IndustryGamers.
