The B word

Just a note that the reality of the casual games space continues to finally sink in to the media.
This article is notable.  Not for its content, though thats interesting, but because its the first time I've

"F2P" consolidation continues

Majesco Boston (formerly "QuickHit") just closed its doors.

As much as this adds to the picture I have been preaching for years, that there really isn't that much money out there in F2P profits, this saddens me.

I did some consulting engineering for them.  It was a nice group of smart people.  And their last product "Mini Putt Park" I thought was exceptional in terms of being a quality F2P experience.

Jeff, Trevor and the rest.  I hope you all land someplace great.
