What was GameZero? Why do you think Perfectt Dark hasn't seen as much love as Goldeneye?

Interview here to help prevent overlap (or something) ... artin_.php

Might be help in inspiring more questions from people.

Q. Was it always a goal to start your own company?

Quote Zoonami mission statement:
"Old games don’t get played much, not because they are bad games, but because they are old. To fulfil the player’s desire for variety we strive for creativity and originality."

Q. Looking at the section above from your mission statment, was frustration with the games industries lack of originality (To us retro gamers probably more so :wink: )
a contributing factor to starting Zoonami?
