This site is by David Perry, owner of Shiny Studios which did the Enter the Matrix game. It is the best site for explaining the gaming industry to newbies.

EWJ was up there with some of the best humour in a game you could find (barring Monkey island and Sam and Max, or course).

Dave Perry is the biggest Hack in the industry.

He has completely risen by riding on the back of others who did all the work. The fact that he takes credit for anything more than his mornig dump is a discrace to the video game industry.





and pretty vain from that web site.

Do you mind explaining how someone who taught himself to program games at 15, started work as a professional game developer at 19, and has 20 years total in the industry can be considered anything else but self-made?

Haven't been there for a while, looks like it's been updated. Cool.

pthomas: Cmon man, don't be a hater. Every sucessful person has a bunch of people whining that they don't deserve their success, when usually the complainers are just frustrated that they themselves work and think as hard as they are capable of, but for some reason cannot attain the same success. Why be one of those people?

Cool site!
I remember when someone(was it Dave himself?) post the url of the Forum, a long, long time ago.

Anyways, I absolutely loved Shiny's "Sacrifice". Damn.. I miss the good old days... :love:
