Interview With Ron Dimant of UD
3:35 PM | Michael Eilers | Comment on this story

As part of our week focusing on the upcoming titles from United Developers, we conducted an interview with founder Ron Dimant, who by no small coincidence is also the CEO of Ritual Entertainment, creators of SiN and Heavy Metal F.A.K.K. 2 among other titles. As you will see by his answers, Ron is a big fan of the Mac platform, and has high hopes for gaming and for the titles UD will bring to the Mac game catalog. Here is a sample:

IMG: United Developers is your latest undertaking. What was your motivation to start UD?


R.D.: As the CEO of a high-profile game developer I have had the opportunity to meet and become friends with other "biz guys" from developers (and publishers) around the world. Usually we talk about games, business issues, etc., and just sometimes we talk about other things that we wish we could do together. UD was formed to provide a degree of focus, and just as significantly, some financial backing behind these "other things," and in collaboration with other developers and publishers, to realise our better "projects" for the mutual benefit of ourselves and the community as a whole.

For more discussion with the United Developers founder, be sure and check out the rest of the interview.
