Gamespot has an interview with Gene Mauro, co-founder of the recently-defunct CEG Games. The idea behind this company was to shift the flow of money around video game development. Rather than funding and directing the development of a game directly, publishers would act as distributors for finished or near-finished games. In the interview, Mauro likens it to the indie film industry. Interesting stuff, and anything that gives developers freer rein over their work is a good thing in my book, but unfortunately, they ran out of startup money before they could get off the ground. Apparently, investors don’t get too excited about companies that promise to turn an entire industry upside down. Go figure.
