BTL Radio Podcast: Sunsetting Games


Hello Enthusiacs! This week we have Damon back to join Baron Fang and myself to discuss the topic we touched on last time Damon was here, what goes into sunsetting a game. For those not in the know, sunsetting is the industry term used for shutting down a game. Yes, I thought it was silly when I first heard it, and I still think it’s kind of silly. From the business side, to the affects it has on the workers, to dispelling some misconceptions, to cancelling before release even happens, we hit it all.

Also, I finally dug up the infamous quotes list mentioned so long ago when Roo was on.

P.S. Unfortunately, this came out after recording, so it wasn’t discussed, but it seems relevant, so check it out:
