i’ve never been a fan of ian bell he is just a doos in general, the studio was struggling thats why they always kickstartered their games and the mad box was just a ruse to spur investor interest in the company, hopefully the company will prosper under the codemasters banner unlike evolution studios team that got almost entirely laid off after the failure of onrush
