Former Crystal Dynamics programmer Bradley Johnson (Lara Croft: Guardian of Light) has made the indie leap with his new game Lame Castle, named after the "lame iPhone app" in a recent anti-iPhone advertisement from Sony.
He began with a prototype for another game, but "after about 2 weeks of work my buddy sent me an e-mail with a link to a PSP ad and wrote, 'We should make this game,'" Johnson told Gamasutra.
"In the ad they're making fun of what looks like an iPhone. The guy in the ad is holding his phone with a game called Lame Castle on it. Once I saw that I wrote back and said, 'Yes, we're going to make that game.'"
