Gamespy Talks to Leonard Boyarsky
Gamespy Talks to Leonard Boyarsky [ Company -> Interview ]
Posted by King of Creation Fri 25 Feb 2005, 7:41 PM
More info on Company: Troika Games | More info on Person: Leonard Boyarsky
Gamespy had the opportunity to discuss the closing of Troika with Leonard Boyarsky.  He talks about projects that were in the works, support with Bloodlines..the usual.
GameSpy: Troika has been around for several years, and had three good titles under its belt. Why do you think you weren't able to secure funding for your next project?

Boyarsky: I'm not sure, you'd have to ask the publishers. If I had to guess, I'd say it's because triple A titles are costing more and more to make, and people are looking for titles that will appeal to a more mainstream audience than ours have traditionally. In plain English, our games just didn't sell enough units.
I guess there's no room for innovation anymore.  You've gotta to the peons, the worthless masses who wouldn't know a great game if it broke down their front door and shot their dog.  Troika had potential, probably the most potential I've seen from a game developer in a long time.  The man brought 'em down, though.  I just hope everything works out in the end for everyone.
