Gamecloud: New Crayon Games Interview
Phil Steinmeyer - Running a developer is a big, stressful job. For the 'crunch time' of each project, I was working roughly 6 months straight, 7 days a week. That works, barely, when you're single or married without kids. But as my family grew and my interests outside of work grew, I was looking to throttle down and try some different things. I can happily say that in the time since I left PopTop, I haven't worked a single Sunday, and not more than 2 or 3 Saturdays - very nice by comparison.
