This month's November issue of Develop Magazine has a great editorial by Michael French about the state of the UK's games industry compared to the rising powerhouse of Canada. After surveying the videogaming territory, French concludes:
The exciting UK companies aren't the 100-man studies pumping out 360 games, it's nimbler non-traditional outfits. Moshi, Hello Games, Wonderland, Six to Start... Just ask EA: it's the one that spend $500m in 12 months to buy iPhone and Facebook stars from London and Macclesfield.
It's fantastic to be mentioned in such great company, and we're certainly aiming to live up to expectations - we've been a bit quiet lately, but we have some very fun and exciting games in development that we can't wait to show off when the time's right!
