We’re a loose affiliation of self-employed, independent games developers, writers, illustrators, editors and designers. Some have years of industry experience; some have literally never more than thought about making a game before they joined us. None of us are a company director, IP licencor or investor. There’s no boss to make a dollar while we make a dime (if we’re lucky - five cents per word is about what the veterans could ask for, with much grumbling about how it’s stretching the budget). There’s no spectre of long-retired, often-deceased developers hanging around, embodied in sacred-cow rules nobody’s “allowed” to change or discard. Everything we make is 100% creator-owned and 100% profit-shared. The more work you do, the more shares you get. We’re like pirates, except we haven’t had to keelhaul anyone yet.
