[casual_games] "Don't Roll Over" Casuality Slides

For the record, I have been speaking to people from all the usual-suspect
publisher/portals at Causality, and "another Luxor or Diner Dash" is not
what they are wanting at all. In fact, they seem to have developed a quite
strong disinterest in clones.
The real pressure I am feeling from them in my discussions is for innovation
that is easy to learn, addictive to play, that uses themes and game actions
that the core casual user finds appealing. Of course this is easy for the
publishers to *say* and damn hard for us developers to actually *produce*...
But that's our challenge, I guess.
I apologize for speaking out of turn,

These are all brave words, but as long as there are so many companies happy
to get anything published at all, there will be very little room for us to
We the mass hords of starving studios looking for a break will continue to
be happy with whatever we can get. We'll roll over, dance for them and turn
tricks. Then we'll still hear that they want something more like Luxor or
