    I never realised that the Flash community was so hostile against non-indie-game-developers.

    • Iain says:

      I/We don’t speak for the whole Flash community! I play all kinds of games, and indeed on the show I stick up for the AAA trial-to-purchase business model. Personally I don’t enjoy the way many social games play, and me, Ryan and Seb all express reservations about the business model. Is that hostility?

      • Johan Larsson says:

        Of course, you guys are entitled to your opinions. In fact, I listen to your podcast because of them. I also share your reservations about the business model of those games.

        I just think that there are more tactful ways to express those opinions during an interview with people who don’t share them.

          the problem is that the business models behind many of those (anti)-social games is so ugly and evil that its not possible to express an honest opinion about them and being tactful in the same moment.

    Seb- I am a girl and I am obsessed with Game of Thrones. Roy Dotrice’s reading on the audio books is well worth a listen.
    Also, for what it’s worth, Lain, I didn’t think there was anything rude about the way you expressed your opinions about Kabaam’s business model. You seemed to be expressing your view and that’s it. Nothing wrong with that.

    Just wondering if anyone had a link to the tutorials Iain mentions at around 1:02:00 talking to Chris Benjaminsen about “packing 8 booleans into a bite” etc? Sounds interesting if there are still around.
