Reviewer for gamesTM Magazine

Hello everyone,

I'm reviewing Penumbra: Overture for a magazine here in the UK, called gamesTM. I have a query and wasn't entirely sure who to ask about it - so figured I'd pop this up. Please take it down if it's in the wrong section or not fitting with the forum policy in any way.

The reason I'm posting is that I read the game was created by just four people. Is that true?

I'm not sure, but I believe the orginal team for penumbra tech demo(not the actual game) had 6 people, but 2 people walked out before the tech demo was finished. But last I knew, they had 4 people (Don't believe me totally, I'm likely wrong)

Sometimes, if you look carefully at a wall for a few minutes, you'll realize you wasted some time.  It's true.

If Overture sells good, then Frictional may get a lot more guys. After all, id started with four guys, and look where they are now!
