Minus World

Minus World is a comic by Bill Mudron and Anne Moloney, about a game development company in Portland, Oregon. (It starts here.) The details about the games business are very accurate, and often hilarious (e.g. the genesis of Minus World). Check it out.

(Wasn’t there another comic about a game development company in Portland, Oregon, that was not as well-drawn? I forget.)

Update: Ah, yes, I was thinking of Angst Technology, which I blogged about years ago. It’s not as good. I don’t know why I am associating it with Portland.

    Oh man, I just got to the point about movie licensing and I’m not sure I can keep reading this. Too many bad memories.

    Jeez, it looks like that comic has stopped updating :( What is it with WebComicsNation / Modern Tales comics and updating every prime-numbered month on a full moon?

    GAAH! They changed the URL to:

    and didn’t inform anyone :(

    This is the kind of crap why I cancelled my Modern Tales subscription.
