17-Bit Games shares their experience working with Microsoft, how they were treated and all the hurdles they faced.
Man, these guys really tore Microsoft apart in the interview. Can't really blame them, though. This seems to be the consistent attitude toward Microsoft from the independent developer community. It would be a real shock to see Microsoft win back the indies this gen. Aside from a few exceptions like Ska Studios, the indie community has migrated far away from Microsoft.
... and indie games are where you get all the really crazy ideas AAA publishers won't touch with a 10 foot pole... its a shame.
Hahaha... that video was great. I feel like such a bad fan of Arrested Development, though, because a couple of those cutouts I didn't recognize. The ones where he was in the cowboy uniform, and the one where he is hunched over in the snowy area of the trailer. There were probably a couple others, too :( Great trailer! ...oh yeah, the article. Perhaps I should read it now :P
