Veteran designer Raph Koster says goodbye to Disney Playdom
Jokes aside, it appears that Koster left Playdom on amicable terms. The game design guru simply wants to apply what he learned while with the Gardens of Time developer to new projects. This news comes just as Zynga New York (OMGPOP) lead Dan Porter announced his departure from the FarmVille maker, but under less than favorable circumstances.
So, what's next for Koster, you ask? Well, for starters: No, he's not doing a Kickstarter like every other veteran game designer that has gone indie in the past year. Aside from some talks "with a few folks," Koster writes, all the guy wants to do is make some games. So, where will Koster go next? Wherever god takes him, that's where. (I've always wanted to say that.)
