New develop is out now. available to download off the site. http://www.developmag.com
Nice article about how the uk is in a drought of programmers etc for the next gen because colleges arent producing the grads. So they’re stealing grads wherever they can get them. Off physic\maths courses etc.
Definately a nice situation though for people trying to get into the industry, there’s plenty of places. You just need to focus you skills and get those demos made and submitted. Seems like every company is on a hiring drive.

Exodus, Movement of Jah people.
/yes, yes I’m putting my coat on now.
Ofcourse what you say is true Damo, but new blood can cure alot of things. However if the underlying factors remain the same, I would classify a company as being in a terminal downward spiral. I cant see that being the case with Climax, I imagien they’d sort themselves out.
Not saing there was any trouble….’Allegedly’. ‘Apparently’ etc

Not if the problem is the upper management :)

Just thought…. Climax laid off loads of people last year over the Warhammer Online fiasco. Guess they’re getting their staff levels back up again.
