EA Games approached the core developers a while back saying that they wished to publish and distribute our game. Initially, we were stuck in licensing disputes, but after an offer of employing two of our developers full time and an agreement to rewrite any non original code in the game, the next version of Armagetron Advanced will be appearing like always on the PC, but also on the PlayStation 3, the Xbox 360, and the Nintendo Wii. As of today all opensource development will stop. Previous versions will still be free buy new elements such as the single player story line that is under development will be available only via the EA Games distribution.
The thing is, we can't decide which two developers are going to EA... While yes, this is Z-man's game, he does already have full time employment, so it seems a little unfair for him to have two jobs when there are those with no jobs on the team. So, we were thinking about having a lottery to see who goes. Any other good ideas for deciding?
