Spears Talks Future Plans
8:55 AM | Andy Largent | Comment on this story

Jesse Spears has updated his main Harpoon 3 web site with details on why he decided to leave Westlake Interactive. It seems there wasn't any grudge against the popular Mac porting house; instead he simply wanted to pursue his dream of making independent, original game titles as he has in the past. We can't argue with such logic, since any titles will likely help expand the Mac gaming selection.

Spears notes his main goal is now to get Harpoon 3 (currently a Mac-only title) ported to Windows -- how often does that happen? Because of licensing issues he could only sell such a product before the next version, Harpoon 4, is released for the PC. So his focus is now on getting the game ported before Christmas, and then he'd hopefully have enough funds from any revenue to sustain himself while working on a new, original title.

He notes he hasn't forgotten the Mac (or the promised Mac OS X version of Harpoon 3), so don't dismay.

We wish the best of luck to Spears in his new ventures, and to Westlake as they look for a replacement.
