David Johnston, the game's creator, lays the whole story out for Edge, including the thrill of finding a publisher for the XBLA game he's worked on since 2007 -- a thrill that turned to despair as he watched his game slip through the cracks when the publisher was absorbed by Activision.
Johnston (who is considering leaving game development) paints a pretty dire picture for developers who don't have the light of Microsoft promotion shining on them, a somber reminder that, sometimes, having a good game just isn't enough.
