PotBS Developer's Diary

Hitting the beach from the ocean.
MMORPG.com posted a Pirates of the Burning Sea Developer's Diary featuring Russell Williams. We found a treasure map in a wooden leg that had the following written on it.

"Hi, I’m Russell Williams, Executive Producer on Flying Lab’s Pirates of the Burning Sea (www.burningsea.com). The theme of this developer journal is growth. When we started working on the game, we knew we wanted to make a game that was different than the current crop, and whenever you’re creating something new, you have to be willing to experiment. Unfortunately, experimentation produces quite a bit of bad along with the good, and throwing away that work is always painful. But it’s even more painful if you have a full art team that’s been cranking away in a dead-end direction for half a year."
