Employ more people, get less money, fire artists (me!). :p

I think that's what Microforte did with their Fallout2 game.. unfortunately after the game was done, most of them (graduates or students from AIE?) had to be let go.

So it's either
1> employ more people, get less crunch, boot the people after, save money
2> don't employ more people, work the asses off current workers, save money.

btw Bunny, what happened?

I wasn't here at the time so I don't know the full story, and it's not for me to say anyway, sorry. :) As I understand it, it was more due to Interplay's troubles. Suxx0rs bigtime, but it happens to the best of us sometimes. It's not always a stable industry (unless you're John Carmack :p).
