Devs - I'd like to hear your tales of Crunch please
For my MSc dissertation I'd like to hear you tales - good or bad - of crunches you've experienced. All completely anonymous, I'd just like to hear of circumstances surrounding the crunch; how it happened, duration, any similarities to other projects, how it could have been avoided etc.
Any information you can give me would be extremely useful!
Please feel free to contact me by email:
b.worrall (at) warwick (dot) ac (dot) uk
or post here if you have any questions.

Into snuff, are you? Dirty thing.
Curses! Thought this was an actual response! xD

Have you tried contacting Penny Arcade or Scott Kurtz? They run a webcomic/blog about this stuff: http://trenchescomic.com/
I did consider that, sorry! I thought it would be a bump anyway, seeing as the topic was near the bottom of the page.

The Trenches webcomic is more about the general horrible abuse of employees in the American game industry, usually QA testers.
I think you'll find TheDailyWTF more useful
Man, that is an excellent link, thankyou very much!
