What is up with game developers and Windows 8?

Valve, then Blizzard, then ID software. Now it’s UK independent developer Introversion Software. Their lead designer and developer, Chris Delay, stated:

If Microsoft manage to close Windows and get to the point where every app has to be approved and certified by them, it’s game over for a lot of indies, including Introversion.” Delay also added his personal impressions of the new OS: I’m skipping Windows 8 until Microsoft include an option to use the Windows 7 start menu, and reduce the metro interface to a program [like the] Control Panel. It’s like someone at Microsoft took their upcoming tablet interface designed for 7 inch touch sensitive devices, and insisted we’d want the same thing on our 24 inch monitors with mice and keyboards. No thank you Microsoft.”
Tough talk but I have to tell em, tough luck because Windows 8 is here and there will be a market and users who start buying tons of Windows 8 devices. Adapt or die. It’s really that simple. Source  ]]>
