The Armchair Empire recently interviewed Chris Delay of Introversion Software about the developer's unusual real time strategy game, Darwinia. The interview covers a range of topics including the benefits and drawbacks of working at small independent game company. Delay also discusses how the team responds to negative reviews.

Reading positive reviews is easy. How does the team react to a negative review?

Weve had a couple of really, really bad reviews. The websites responsible shall remain nameless in their shame, because weve had hundreds of extremely positive reviews, and its not that hard for us to disregard the bad reviews as simply the reviewer having a bad day and/or not getting it. The bad reviews that weve read tend to show a distinct lack of understanding of the sort of game they were playing for example complaining that we dont have the usual features youd expect in an RTS. Its like saying were not a very good first person shooter. We really dont mind weve linked to all the bad reviews on our website, and they always prove to be an interesting topic on the forums.
