Pissed off? Worried?
I got that email as well and to be honest I'm kinda pissed off and it makes me worry about other projects.
Have you guys never paid the slightest bit of attention to game development until now? People are acting like this is the most shocking and outrageous thing they've ever heard.
It happens ALL THE TIME. And usually the publishers just threaten everyone until the game gets cut down to size and forced into the package the publisher decided they wanted it to fit, and that's what we get, and then we all moan about it not being finished or being half a game or being full of bugs.
This lot have gone entirely predictably over budget, confessed fully to it, told us what all their options were and put forward one that will hopefully allow them to make *almost* exactly the game they wanted to make.
And we're "pissed off" and "worried about other projects".
