A dark (yet hilarious) take on video game publishing

July 25, 2013 | By Mike Rose




Tim Keenan, the developer behind indie game A Virus Named Tom, has given some insight into the sort of publishers that he talked to while trying to get his game on various platforms.

Although the dev was keen to stress that the reenactments shown in the video above are only based on actual events, rather than word-for-word representations, it's still hilarious to hear some of the deliciously laughable excuses for choosing not to back a game.

Of course, it should be noted that it's far from the case that most publishers are like this. But that doesn't mean we can't have a giggle at how some publishers attempt to court indies.
