Here's a blog post I wish I had written

Steve Gaynor presents his thoughts about a games industry version of film noir.

I think this is happening to a certain degree, just not in the 3D space -- admittedly, there's room for improvement. Apparently folks are still making money with text (see Skotos Tech, which has been around for quite a while now) and as Gaynor mentions, 2D abounds. It may be that 3D just hasn't hit the 'cheap enough' mark; it may be that the casual/downloadable game space represents this market to some degree. But it's worth reading and thinking about.

Steve doesn't work for Telltale, he's just friends with a few employees and comes to the focus tests!

Updated. That'll teach me to glance at the Moby Games' site for someone and figure that just because he's in five game credits for a particular company, he works for that company. :)

Be sure to occasionally come and pester me to write more articles as my, *ahem*, friends do. :)
