MD of indie-developer Hello Games, Sean Murray (once of Criterion and Kuju), has said that he believes developers who don't take risks are in danger.
Murray states that games market is turning in favour of small developers due to financial risk becoming more important. Murray replied:
"People want innovation, it's just that at this stage, publishers don't want risk - and that's what they're saying. I think that's really short sighted, to me, but then I'm a small developer. I think it would be really risky not to innovate at the moment."
Do you agree with Murray's comment on risk taking being necessary for innovation in the games industry? And do you hope that Hello Games' next title shows it is not a one-hit wonder? Feel free to post your thoughts below.
