How Does It Feel To Have Something You Created Shut Down?

Being a backer of Camelot Unchained I get the pleasure of conversing with Mark Jacobs in the backers forum. Does he really show up and talk to everyone there? Yes he does and to be honest I have never seen a more accessible developer anywhere in all the games I have played.  I realize that may sound like a fanboi statement but it is true.

Not only is he accessible but the man truly cares for his "backers" and his "employees", which in today's cutthroat business world is a breath of fresh air to me.

Which brings me to the title of this post. Even though Mythic Studios was created in 1995 by Mark and Rob Denton, Mark in the forums like any of us had to work through the announcement of Mythic closing down.

When he did comment about it his first concern was for the employees and their families. And if you are interested in what he said about the closure here is a good read:
