I'm sorry to tell you that I've seen this before again... I found it when doing some of the research for twinadv. But it has not been posted on the forum, or anywhere, so it's ok you do so.

Just like Bruno Heintz' previous company, they are probably recruiting talented game developers from all over the world.

Jimbob: Hong Kong isn't poor at all. They're probably looking for someone from there only because the opporunity showed up or something.

It's interesting information indeed, that's why I said it was good you posted it!

Yes, I knew about it, discussed it with Axx while working on twinadv, and as he has written most of the text and it's not in the articles he probably forgot about it, and I forgot about it as well.

I saw it because for Twinadv I made a document with a summary of all internet search results for F4-Toys (and later one on Frederick Raynal), this was one of the search results.

Hongkong is one of the more capitalistic places in the world, and absoluteley not poor. (well there are many VERY rich people and many poor too just as supercapitalism works).

Bifter, I do not want a conflict with you, please let that be clear. And I also do not want to lie. Should I have said that I didn't know anything about that page?

I didn't mean that with 'ok', I meant like "that's ok, that's all right, it's good you did so". But now I'm thinking of it I could have been a bit more clear indeed, sorry for that.

Now let's talk about what the thread was for... I think it's cool that they are expanding indeed Do you guys think they are also recruiting people from other countries? It would be quite an international company then.

No offence, but we have Axx as our informant. We don't need another. How do you know all of this anyway?

As far as being as being an informant, id like to make it clear i clearly may miss some stuff out, and i alone am not perfect...

Though this news is very very old, it is not in anyway significant, there is far too little info to comment anout. I didnt keep it back, i though itd be silly details, particularily since it cannot be confirmed, and im not sure of its credibility.
Regardless i will put somthing about it in the site when i get some better info on it!
