Jeff Braun, the other Sims creator, has joined Red Mile as a strategic advisor. He said his ears pricked up about the company when it inked the deal to publish Sin City.
"Red Mile got my attention when it licensed Frank Miller's Sin City," he said. "The opportunity to work with a company that has the rights to such an influential Frank Miller property is very compelling. The next big challenge for Red Mile will be to turn this property into a triple-A game and make the transition to a top-tier publisher. I believe their development strategy, in addition to the management experience of Glenn Wong [ex-head of EA Canada - Ed], are key steps toward achieving this goal."
Braun's been around for almost 20 years. His career began when he co-founded Maxis with Will Wright in 1987.
