    Thats ... astounding! Congrats Emmanuel! Wow...

    I would ask for numbers and dollar values but I know I wouldn't get them. Must have been quite a bit to make you give up the phat lewt you were pulling from your games.

    Dang. That seems like a rather hurried marriage. But congratulations, nonetheless! :)

    Nobody ever argued that clones weren't big business and a good way to make money.

    Man, and just half a year ago Emmanuel seemed like a typical starving indie. At least I can tell people I knew him before he got really big and famous. ;)

    That's amazing news, man!

    I'm confident both you and BFG will benefit from working even closer together.

    Congrats!

    There's a longer version on yahoo.

    Well of course, the deal is good for both parties: seeing as we're going to work together for years to come, it's best that everybody is very happy about that part.

    However, it's also not a secret that we've been really beyond impressed with BFG since they published Atlantis. Now that we've been acquired, we have a fantastic distribution channel, we're able to get mentored by the team that came up with Huntsville, and we have people like Paul Thelen and Pat Wylie on our side. They deserve their reputation many times over. I modestly think we can contribute our production values, and I know that we can really grow our studio in quality by working for Bigfish.

    Technically we're still indies (as BigFish) so I hope I still belong here :)

    Best regards,
    Emmanuel

    Hm, but consider that the even stronger competitor BigFish is getting stronger still.
