I didn't realize the us money situation was so insane currently, in fact
from conversations we've had about the relative price of things like pizza
over there it actually seems things are cheaper than they are over here.

i got my programmers' idea from my friend who is a professional web
designer, and currently gets £23 thousand (he recently moved jobs from a 20
thousand one), which is only about $32 thousand.
I can see why so many professionals from this country are moving to the us
to get jobs, ---- even apart from the fact there are just no jobs at all
around here, ---- a friend of mine with the iquivolent of 4 degrees
including law and economics and a masters in human resources can only get
temp office jobs, while I've seen people with doctorates working in
When you put it like that, commercial game developement does seem more
difficult as self finance, though if Che is write and Jeremy could sell more
games than I thought that might well balance things out.
there are however small indi developers who do support themselves, even down
to single people working on one game like Sryth, or small teams like Core
exiles, though nobody has done it with accessible games yet.
Beware the Grue!
