You say that as though he weren't working on Rural Fishing: http://www.create-games.com/project.asp?view=main&id=1883

Of course that isn't the point of this thread and I'm surprised that this fight should break out here, sorta. You all are going to have to stop this because it is contrary to proper site conduct. Stay on topic.

On topic, I read that blog post a bit ago and noticed that somewhere (I don't remember if it was in the context of that post) he said something leading me to believe that Tormishire wasn't exactly out of development, and that Lunnye would be the last new game they work on commercially. It is a shame though; he was always so excited to talk about Boss Baddie and how it was going on Facebook.

I didn't think of it like that. Gonna be really busy doing uni as well as games, but I suppose a fair few people manage to juggle both.

By the way, Jay's released a Pay What You Want thing for a couple of his games http://satansam.co.uk/bossbaddie/

I don't get why having made games means anything about anything. It just doesn't, does it? I mean, Ive made loads of games Adam and you still dislike me. What kind of point are you trying to make?

I judge people by their personalities not their output. That's why I don't like you.

Ive just posted an entire list via PM to Matt about why I dislike James, and it doesn't really have anything to do with his games, more things he's said in the past and his attitude behind closed doors. When I see someone being so highly regarded yet know that he's no better (attitude wise) than myself behind the scenes it sickens me to see people falling for someone who's so false, and we all know Im not the kind of person to keep quiet about it. Phizzy could see it before anyone else a long time ago, I guess that's the one thing I can look back and agree with him on.

Edit: Oh and I couldn't give a hoot if you like me or not.

Juggle both? For me, that was when I had the most time to make games. Now I have like 6 minutes a day.

(Only just cottoned on to this thread...)

I think this is a crying shame that Tormi is seemingly not going to get finished, for both James and Mr. Pineapple. Unfortunately piracy always has, and almost certainly always will, be a big part in any software developers life - still 10 for a year's work is bloody hard to take for any budding developer who pour as much time and devotion into their games as those guys were doing!

The idea of releasing smaller games based upon the same engine as a huge game like Tormi is something i think was a good mood - alot of people played those games, it should have helped the cash-flow whilst Tormi was being finished and kept their faces on the indie scene. I genuinly feel sorry for them that it hasn't worked out.

As for James himself - i spoke to him via pm a fair few times and found him to be a seemingly great guy who helped me out quite a bit. His enthusiasm for game-making was something i admired, i loved the fact that he incorporated XBox control pad support in his games (it's indeed a great joypad!) and the fact he "spoke about his home cinema and swimming pool that he later denied to have" really has nothing to do with me - why do i care about his home cinema system or if he was "lying" about it?

And for Mr. Rule (not that he needs us to justify him, but i wanted to say...) i am more than happy with his journalistic quality, as well as him being an admin on TDC - i think he's a great choice!

I just paid a reasonable price for his games in the pay-what-you-want sale.

Though polarising, I agree somewhat with what Adam has said. The lack of demos was really the only reason I didn't buy his games. I would have liked to buy them initially, but I didn't want to buy something without at least trying it first. It's pretty a standard thing to have. Customers shouldn't have to go on faith.

I've got an Xbox Controller for PC, so hopefully it will be fun to play with that

I was wondering where the hell Dr. James has been lately.

*GULP*

Potential piracy is also somewhat concering me too for H2. I mean I've already been working on the thing for years and by the time it's done.. I mean I really would hate it if 5 years of sweat and blood ended up making me like $40 total.

ODW has not sold very well past the first couple weeks either. I guess it's just one of those things.

In any event, I for sure won't quit my day job!!
