After yesterday's Atari acquisition announcement, Ten Ton Hammer's Cody Bye took the opportunity to interview Cryptic Studiosí Chief Creative Officer, Jack Emmert regarding the news.
Ten Ton Hammer: First off, how will being acquired by Atari change the studio and/or any of the games that are going to be developed by Cryptic? Jack Emmert: This will allow us to focus on our games and not focus so much on keeping the lights on. The job of an independent developer, especially the larger the studio gets, is as much about running the company as it is about developing the game. Those two roles are extremely hard to balance the larger and larger you get.
