(re: re: re: Why was there never a third game?)
Ken, I’m sure you’re right about this one. I heard about the situation second-hand several years ago, while you actually lived it. It’s also a likely possibility that “arguments over the direction of the series” is a more “image-friendly” version of the bidding story (or non-bidding in this case) from Evryware’s side.
Are you saying that if you had it to do over again, you would be less rigid with the no-bidding rule? Would bidding higher for the games you mentioned have definitely been profitable for Sierra? Or would that have compromised the company’s values and been detrimental in the long-run?
Also how did you get so business-savvy? Did you read up on the subject a lot, have some good mentors, or was it just instinctual and you learned as you went?
