Tim Stamper’s first interview since 2007 was published yesterday, and its full of insights about Nintendo, Microsoft and the future.
A couple quotes below are very exciting, seems like FortuneFish is not the only thing the stampers have been working om in the past 8 years.
“Chris and I needed to take a new direction to produce some better, greater products for the future, and we thought the only way we’d be able to do that was to take a step sideways and pursue a new venture.”
“There are actually a number of new ventures,”
“FortuneFish is run by a few guys – I’m an investor in FortuneFish and so is Chris. I spend some of my time there, and it’s being run by Joe and a chap called Phil Popejoy. That’s been going for two years, and it’s going well.
“Ultimate and Rare made dramatic changes to the type of software available throughout their history and that’s why I don’t really want to sit back and look at what’s been done before. We need to push forward to the future – that’s why the move from Microsoft was made, that’s what I’m doing now, and that’s what I’ve been doing with Chris for the last eight years or so.”
So what direction is the veteran games developer taking?
“Well, I can’t tell you that yet, but you’re going to find out hopefully by the end of the year.”
