Michael Vance and I were talking about how post-mortems are never completely honest because they have to go through various executives, legal, and PR before they get to print. So here's Michael's idea: this blog could be a forum for anonymous post-mortems. If you'd like to participate, write a post-mortem, make sure that it's anonymous - that is, don't include the name of the game or the company or anybody on the team...but do include rough estimates of sales (in dollars), reviews on gamerankings (to the nearest 5%), and budgets (to the nearest mil)...if you can get that kind of data. And I'll throw it up here. I'm not offering any money for this...just a chance to vent. And the codename will be: Fucked Project.
Maybe nobody will send me anything. We'll see.
