Paradox, like all the big publishers troughout the history, at the same time became collectors of IP rights and blight of industry.
They are already making Star Trek Stellaris, we are waiting for Game of Thrones Crusader Kings.
that star trek game is also being made by a third party, which is owned by its own publisher. i mean if some company came to me and said, please publish my clone of your game that is in someone else's universe, why would i say no? paradox seems to be acting more of a landlord of GSGs rather than IP here.

Let's just hope no mods will be blatantly copied in the process.

LOL, good stuff :lol:

Finally, Curry unburdened herself of the indignities she's undergone as a woman in the games industry.


"I thought I was strong enough to lead the charge, to prove through talent and hard work and positivity that women have a vital role to play."


"I thought I was strong enough to lead the charge," she said, "to prove through talent and hard work and positivity that women have a vital role to play."I’ve had journalists assuming I’m Dan's [personal assistant], I have been referenced as 'Dan Pinchbeck’s wife' in articles, publishers on first meeting have automatically assumed that my producer is my boss just because he’s a man, one magazine would only feature Dan as studio head and wouldn’t include me. When Dan has said 'Jess is the brains of the operation' people have knowingly chuckled and cooed that it’s nice of a husband to be so kind about his wife. I don’t have enough paper to write down all of the indignities that I’ve faced."


"This is not a rejection of [Pinchbeck] but of the society that still can’t cope with the fact that a woman might just be as talented as the man she shares her life with."
Oh no, nepotism met with minor indignities! Wasn't aware that journos routinely preferred to talk to Kotick about new CoD features over people actually working on the game.
