Introversion's Chris Delay has written up an account of the company's "truly terrible" 2008 in the firm's blog, claiming that everything he worked on last year was a "failure".
"It’s hard for me to look back, because I see Subversion on hold so much of the time, and I see my major time sinks (Chronometer, Defcon DS, Multiwinia) all as failures, not even projects I wanted to work on, and now have to live with them all going sour," said the developer.
Delay admits in the piece that Introversion nearly folded last year, but that new finding is now giving the firm hope.
"We’re back on the ascendancy, with a truly terrible year behind us, and a new sense of clarity and purpose," he added.
It's sobering stuff.
