Two bits of news came out of Madison last week. First, the good news.
Big Rooster, a new studio founded by some of the people I worked with at Human Head Studios, has landed the job of computerizing Talisman (the classic board game from Games Workshop) for the Xbox 360, Playstation 3, and PC. Congratulations, guys!
The bad news is that a serious fire damaged the offices of Human Head Studios. Fortunately, no one was hurt, and the team recovered most of its data. A lot of their equipment was damaged, but that can all be replaced. I know how disruptive something like this can be, but I know that the people at Human Head are a resourceful and tenacious lot. Good luck in finding new offices and getting back on track soon!
