Flagship Studios Hellgate: London was pretty much a make or break venture. Unfortunately, it broke them and brought down the promising Mythos along with it.
A month later, Bill Roper and Jeff Green of 1UP’s PC side got together and had an interesting chat. They talked about Flagship’s final months and the harsh reality of creating and maintaining your own game studio. The interview spans eight pages, but it’s all worthwhile reading since it provides a rare insight to what happens when things don’t go as planned.
For those who don’t know, Bill Roper worked on the Diablo series before leaving the company to form Flagship Studios.
