News related to Top Story: Prosper Makes it Big Time

Remeber, Prosper? The guy we all made fun of and assumed would never amount to anything, well we have been proven wrong. He has scored a major interview over at Gamer Gaia ;


Aware of the limitations of the industry,and its tendency to advance so quickly it leaves old models in the dust faster than independent programmers can hammer them out, Prosper’s designs on Fallout multiplayer were slowly defeated by a lack of motivation and fulfillment. So discouraged by the stress of finishing projects that he often trashed them well before completion, he attracted the criticism of those in the community who wanted solid results. Faced with a dwindling following for Fallout 3 as New Vegas took the spotlight, Prosper felt his project becoming trivial and unwanted. The cause to which he’d devoted so much of his time and energy was losing steam and supporters.


What eventually got him kicked from The Nexus, one of his two major outlets for advertising his ideas and results, was what he describes as an unprovoked attack by a number of respected modders. He suggests that it was because of his ambitions for Fallout multiplayer that he was ejected from the community without warning. Regardless of how or why it happened, Nexus was lost, and so too was his most appropriate stomping grounds.

Prosper has lost the official Bethesda Soft Games Forum, too. Not only did he manage to get himself threatened by Bethesda’s legal team after suggesting they allow encryption of plugins, but he was permanently banned after he bluffed at having a leak of sensitive Fallout 4 documents. Take this with a grain of salt – until Bethesda's reaction made him think otherwise, Prosper himself intended for it all to be a joke. Six minutes after posting pages upon pages of backdated material originally developed and scrapped for Fallouts 1 and 2, his account was frozen, both on Bethesda’s official forum and on the popular image site on which he stored his documents."

We can only hope prosper remebers us when he is a big time game developer. You can read the whole article here.
