Entertainment: Doing More With Less

This past week saw EA shutting down the illustrious Maxis studio building that fostered the long-lived SimCity game series.

Also this week, comes news of a similar game's release, Cities: Skylines. Its publisher, Paradox Interactive, is a much smaller developer, and yet their initial, first version release appears to be far less buggy and more playable than behemoth EA's releases.

This is only a reminder of the lesson we learned from Mojang (of Minecraft fame), that fewer employees are just as capable--if not more so--of creating not just functional, but revolutionary software.
