What is your position on crowd funded games? (e.g., Kickstarter, Early Access on Steam)

Daniel Cermak

Developer Biography

Dan bought his first computer when $2,500 would get you 24K of RAM - yes, 24K. A self taught programmer, Dan spent seven years trying to write games and only completed and shipped two titles. So instead, he decided to try working for the “enemy” - a publisher (Strategic Simulations Inc.). Dan worked on almost every genre of product in just about every production position possible. After eleven years SSI was bought and sold and bought and sold and a really good thing was gone. Dan left the west coast to work with friends at Westwood, but unfortunately Westwood had already been bought and sold and the future was going the way of SSI. Two years and one product later Dan decided to try the Midwest and Volition. In 2009 he was vice president of product development of the studio and in May 2011 it was announced he would become president of the company, when founder Michael Kulas stepped down after eighteen years.
