[UPDATE 03/16: RADAR INVISIBILITY - apparently the site was only live as a test - and will go up again early this week - perhaps Monday]
I don't normally post about business stuff, but a friend pointed me in the direction of Scott Miller's (of 3DRealms fame) new gig:
Sounds like an interesting project - building creative with developer partners to retain IP ownership and leverage it across different media. If they can make that work it is obviously hugely profitable and also really good for the developers involved.
Normally I wouldn't pay much attention to a business announcement at all, but there are three things they seem to have going for them right out of the gate.
First - most new companies like this have a bunch of jargon designed to appeal to VC investors, and then their 'projects' page is blank. In this case, they already have listed not one, but three titles Earth No More, Prey 2, and another new IP I've never heard of called 'Incarnate'. Admittedly, I had thought 3DR was running Earth No More and Prey 2... but regardless, the fact that the page isn't blank means these guys are actually doing stuff.
The other two reasons are Raphael Van Lierop and Will Kerslake - two guys whose work I respect tremendously. If these two are heavily involved in the creative, the RADAR has the ball to run with.
