While FunPause is a great example of successful business, I totally disagree with you. If it was really all about money and pragmatism, then I'd just take a gun and go to the local bank or, if I wanted to be even more criminally pragmatical, I'd try to become a politician. No, while FunPause's goals were probably what they achieved at the end, and big big sincere claps for that, some people here didn't esteem too much the use of the demo/tutorial DAZ out of the box Fairies model, to make an example, and this has nothing to do with envying FunPause success. If it was that I'd have my room filled of posters of Bill Gates, and believe me I don't have any. If it was just envy for the final result, people like Id Games wouldn't be esteemed like they are. John Carmack is a great coder, period. Could you say that FP games excel in code, or in gfx (DAZ rules, but that's another story). No, although they're certainly not poor in quality, but what they really excel in is business sense and will to power, so to speak.. which is something that contrarily to what you think other people aren't really interested in, although they see the money potential in it. So let's not confuse the two things: FunPause deserves big congrats for their business vision, but I think that artistically speaking they won't enter into Valhalla. Just my opinion of course, loading the demo/tutorial of DAZ and rendering it to make it the main character of a game is, some way artistically* speaking, absolutely smart anyway. *even "to get a successful game out in few weeks" is a form of art IMHO, although not the one I like to focus in, IF I HAVE A CHOICE (if from that depends the fate of my family or company then, I'd make this comprimize 1000 times too, even more than FP did, and would enter into Savant's hell of cloners if from that depended the bread I can give to my family every day.. but I'd never *enjoy* doing so or trying to do it when I'm not in a desperate/survival need of money. If I am wealthy, I'd look for the originality instead, and get into Savant's heaven ;--) ). But you can't claim that everyone in the world envies THAT kind of becoming successful, or you're wrongly labeling people in stupid and in smart ones. There are many more colours in the world.
