Insight Venture Management Takes an ownership stake in Trendy

Recommended Posts

there will be a contractual obligation of certain things being given in return for their money.


yes they have to keep the bathrooms very clean and well stocked with toilet paper especially when the investors are in town visiting ;)

to keep you guys as community-centric


don't worry we will still be able to make fun of them, if they delete our posts here well we can just put them on steam's DD forum ;)

As long as I'm here, you can expect a strong community focus.

This is good to hear, and thank you for that. You do a fantastic job, and we appreciate it more than we can convey through simple thank-yous. What I said about community-centric policies applies to how Trendy has expanded on the game itself, too. They have made changes to the game based on the feedback of the playerbase; not just over the long term, but often-times immediately after a new content release. This is unlike most titles from big publishers, where the direction of their game is based more on stats tables, Metacritic scores, industry trends, strict sales obligations, and a bunch of other things whose involvement spells far more bad than good for a game.

The majority of that comes from the time and effort that our head honcho, Jeremy, puts in to listen to and incorporate community feedback. As long as he's commander-in-chief around here, rest assured that feedback from the playerbase will still directly affect changes in the game.

Next day Hitmonchan get's fired. :x

Although I doubt they purchased more than 50% of the company but I am sure they have a large amount of shares.

not even a word about him integrating jester and map into the upcoming release

I actually imagined that there was huge rave going on at Trendy HQ, complete with the Trendy team snorting coke off of a hooker's bum.

that's so yesterday, anyways the place is rated E for Everyone, so they only drink coke and Laura she threw the hooker's out, would not have none of it, and the investors already installed those little cameras to watch over how their money is spent.

so the party is being secretly held on one of those offshore casino boat where they allow just about anything and anyone and well Jeremy has $18M and he feels LUCKY ;)

I love how both of those are stated as, "As long as...". Usually in a movie or TV show, when that is said, they are no longer whatever they are. So Hitmon must be foreshadowing on events to come.

Since this isn't about Dungeon Defenders, I'm moving this to off-topic. I left it in General for a day so everyone could see it.

no longer front page news, now relegated to off topic with other buried storied, like "who likes bacon on a hamburger" http://forums.trendyent.com/showthread.php?74432-who-likes-bacon-on-a-hamburger :(


lol Beware. Now that your thread is in the off-topic section, expect it to be high jacked by bacon.

And one of our wonderful event hosts' (Baconator4lyf member), just made this herself yesterday. Enjoy!
