Warren Spector wishes he'd made The Golden Compass

As you probably already know if you've paid even a modicum of attention to the mainstream media recently, Phillip Pullman's book The Golden Compass totally killed God. But did you know it also did something even more difficult? Did you know it broke Warren Spector's heart? It's true!

The respected developer talked about the book (one of his favorites) and the ensuing movie on his personal blog, saying "I really wanted to make the game, long before the film came out, but that's another story..." Instead of whatever Warren Spector would have done with the franchise, we're left with a 44% average offering. ... Hmm. Maybe The Golden Compass broke our hearts.
