An Interview with Mike Wallis, CEO of Colony Studios

Recently, MMO fans have seen the list of game development companies working on MMOGS grow to an astounding high. Colony Studios is the latest addition to this long-running list, yet they claim one advantage over many of their competitors – an enormous amount of experience.
