Auto Assault Gets Some (Mainstream) Press

A look inside the Auto Assault war room...

It's always nice to see MMOs make the mainstream news (well, except when the headline decries parental neglect or Chinese communist ambitions). This is, in fact, the second or third professional piece from the land of Rocky Mts. and microbrews I've seen in the last week or so.

Included is a interesting look inside NetDevil's hub during the last hours before the game went gold:

Speaking last week on the precipice of opening the floodgates to his company’s virtual word, Brown said NetDevil’s future could hinge on the success of the game.

“I’m not worried about bugs (in the game); there’s going to be some weird stuff,” he said. “It’s just launching that scares me.

“That’s what I’m mostly scared about, having too many or too few players.”

Too many, and the desolate earth of Auto Assault could crumble under the strain; too few and NetDevil might.

Check out this very worthwhile read at Rocky Mountain News. (Thanks to Shacknews for the link!)
