RPG General News - Jeff Vogel: The Unity Debacle

Jeff Vogel talks about the Unity debacle:

So How Long Until My Business Just Dies? (Also, the Unity Debacle)

Be careful who gets to hold a gun to your head.

The financial statement for a fun little company called Unity. The important thing is the numbers in the bottom line. That are negative.
Not long ago, there was a big hullabaloo in the computer game development "community" regarding something called the Unity Game Engine. People got very justifiably upset and ran around screaming and then things got sort of fixed and all got quiet.

Happily, I was on vacation during most of this and was barely aware of it.

Still, it was a really interesting situation, and independent creators of all sorts could learn a lot from it. Lessons that they should learn, the easy earlier way or the hard later way.

When you're in business, someone will always be holding a gun to your head. But you can sometimes choose the gun.
