No Matter Where You Go….
Three day weekend due to the MLK holiday on Monday. Wish I could relax more, but it looks as though this weekend is going to be spent largely with wrestling with a fairly large decision.
This week, the rights-holders to the Buckaroo Banzai property contacted me regarding a query that I had sent out some time ago regarding the license to produce a BB role-playing game. Apparently, they’re interested, and want to hear a full, formal proposal.
Normally, this would be a no-brainer for me. However, in the time since I first sent out the query, my disillusionment with the games industry has come to a head, and now I’m not sure whether or not it’s worth getting back into it again, even for the opportunity to produce a game that I’ve wanted to do for ages.
A lot to think about. I’ve got to decide if it’s worth taking this idea further, spending the money for the license, the production, the distribution…if it’s worth the aggravation of dealing with the industry as it is….if it’s worth dealing with the gamers. At this point, I just don’t know.
