Last year I blogged about developers needing to choose a publisher carefully. This post shows that devs still need to be careful.
Gamezebo recently posted an open letter from several studios about the horrific relationship they have endured with Mamba Games. I’m not going to post the entirety of it here but basically the publisher sold their rights where they were not legally allowed to do so and has failed to pay or even report the sales back to several studios. This is a breach of contract in the worst way and unfortunately many developers just throw up their hands and say “What can we do about it? We can’t afford to sue them”. Many times they’re right but I like the way they have chosen to handle the situation.
