About the Author
Gathering of Developers, a Texas-based computer and video game publishing company, was founded in January 1998 in response to the industry's need for a publisher who understands and respects independent game developers. Fueled by past publishing experiences and frustrations, several experienced, hit-making development companies bound together to form The Gathering, a relationship-based publisher that treats developers as professional entertainment artists. Now a subsidiary of Take Two Interactive, The Gathering remains committed to its priniciples of cultivating strong developer relations.
