what happened to EAs 8lb gorilla?

I haven't heard anything about 8lb, they said they were going to make a game per month. After doing a search I only found the zombie one.

It's coming...

Sorry for the radio silence- we're deep in the jungle-primeval developing our next game. It's going to be hilariously awesome. More to come.

Well, it won't have leaderboard or mulitplayer

Lie #1: A game per month.

Lie #2 working hard.

Lie #3 don't have time/budget for updates.
Yeah, but have time/budget to go on vacation after getting my money for an incomplete game. And you think the thread of Minigore vs A4E is crazzzzzy??

Don't hold you're breathe, this is typical EA. I wouldn't even keep bumping this thread, giving them burn. imho

Well would you rather have a rushed or polished game?

No offense or anything but unless you spy on them or make lots of awesome games you really can't say they're not working hard.

Also, 8lb Gorilla is a sub-company, meaning EA gives them a budget to abide by and they can't just go over it or anything. While I see what you're saying, I just don't agree with it. Whatever, every person to his own.

I'll give them the benefit of the doubt for now. I kinda like small dev companies, so I'm gonna ride in this boat a bit longer, see where the river takes me.

Anyways, I doubt the gorilla in that picture is 8 lbs...
