The joy of small businesses

5 August 2009 by Jeremy WhiteJeremy White

There are many frustrations running a small business. You don't have an army of accountants to deal with oddball tax problems . You don't have a large marketing department to run expensive ads on national TV. Your embezzlement choices are paper clips or pens, not millions of dollars in golden parachutes.

But there is a lot of joy as well. You get to pull together fun marketing campaigns. If you're bored of the grind, it's nice to knock off to go grab some shag carpet samples, and roll start an old car.

Last week was even more fun - our game developers told us that we were ready for some large scale testing on a lot of work they'd done. So I got to order everyone in the office to play games. Despite the fact that Left 4 Dead was playing perfectly, and everyone was laughing and enjoying themselves, they all insisted that more testing was required 😊.

So, as soon as I make bail here in Seattle, drive home, and then we clear up a few bugs, we should have CrossOver Games 8.0 ready for your gaming pleasure.


Cheers,
Jeremy

I too am excited to hear about CrossOver Games 8.0 coming out soon.  What was prioritized this time around?  Would you mind sharing what games are compatible that used to not be?  Thank you for your amazing work on this excellent product!
