Digital Chocolate's Trip Hawkins wins our 'Stay on Target' award
If you're not familiar with Hawkins, the tenacious game exec founded 3DO in 1991, then went on to found Electronic Arts, which is currently one of the biggest gaming companies around, and more recently, Digital Chocolate, which makes mobile games and popular Facebook games such as Millionaire City and, more recently, Zombie Lane.
Anyway, this isn't the kind of news we'd normally cover on Games.com - The Blog!, but I was so bemused by Hawkins response to Forbes, I couldn't let it go without mention. In the letter (which is an email he sent to his company) that admits he's having "some tough issues," and after several paragraphs of seemingly heartfelt explanation, ends his missive by asking everyone to "TELL ALL YOUR FRIENDS TO PLAY OUR HOT NEW GAME, ZOMBIE LANE ON FACEBOOK!!!"
So, congratulations, Trip Hawkins, you're this week's winner of our 'Stay on Target' award. Back taxes be damned.
