An alleged and anonymous Obsidian developer has blasted his company's latest RPG, Alpha Protocol, stating that the game 'should've been cancelled'.
Posting in the comments section of Joystiq's Alpha Protocol review (via CVG), the anonymous Obsidian man - known only as 'a tired dev' - backs up the site's negative comments.
"I worked on this game (a fact of which I am not proud). I'm not here to defend it; I agree with all these reviews," the post reads.
The angry rant continues, with the illusive man admitting that the blame for the game's poor end form is mostly Obsidian's, because "the execution was absolutely terrible, and it was obvious 2 years ago that this game should have been scrapped."
Mr. Tired Dev at least reckons he's happy about some of Obsidian's other current projects, New Vegas included, because they are "going pretty well."
He adds: "Their big unannounced project is looking great and is already much better than AP ever was, and that may end up being the game that everyone was looking for with AP."
