"Gamecock Media Group is one of those names you see a lot in the gaming press but aren't quite sure what they actually do.
You've probably heard about the Austin-based company when they held a funeral for E3 in 2007. Or when its employees rushed the stage at the 2007 Spike Video Game Awards during Ken Levine's acceptance speech. Or maybe you remember its CEO's candidacy for president of the Entertainment Software Association earlier this year.
But perhaps what you haven't heard is that they also publish games. Formed in 2007, the company put out "Dementium: The Ward" on DS and "Fury," a now defunct PvP-based MMO. This year, they've published "Insecticide," "Stronghold Crusader Extreme," "Hail to the Chimp," and "Pirates vs. Ninjas Dodgeball." And before the end of 2008, they'll release FPS "Legendary" and hyped action-adventure title "Mushroom Men."
I recently spoke with CEO Mike Wilson, not about the publisher's antics, but how the company is doing.
Here is his candid summary of the company's first year..."
