That's interesting, but I don't see how any realistic game company can offer their services for 90 days.

The issue of 90 days aside (Assuming you used and understood libraries for everything, I doubt you could make anything polished more complex than maybe an NES game with better graphics. If you're going for a prototype, you might be able to pull off something modern and rough in 90 days, but that would really be pushing), what if they don't finish your game? You're in sort of a lurch then, aren't you? Out 150K without much to show for it. Most projects don't seem to finish all their milestones on time anyway.

That was sort of cynical, wasn't it? That came out harsher than I think I meant it.

You're right. Humour-binned.

I would guess that this might be the boys at www.garagegames.com. Dunno though, just my 2 pennies worth.

Yeah, it probably is. It's funny and all, but it's actually kind of a cool idea.
