Of course it doesn't. In fact, I can't think of a single game developed in Scotland that's ever made any money or had any impact on the industry at all.

But this chap would like a word with the authors of that report

Sergeant Grumbles: Boudica's War Tampon: Angus: (getting a little angry) Oh look woman, how many games did we sell last year? Nine and a half, that's all. So when I get an order for 48,000,000, I believe it - you bet I believe it.

Mrs Podgorny: Even if it's from a blancmange?

Angus: Och, woman, if a blancmange is prepared to come 2,200,000 light years to purchase a game, they must be fairly keen on games. So cease yer prattling woman and get coding. This could be the biggest breakthrough in games since the Provost of Edinburgh sat on a joystick. Mary, we'll be rich! We'll be rich!

Oh my god. Brain not work. Where is that from?
Is that the flan that tried to win Wimbledon by turning everyone Scottish?

Somaticasual: Did they find literally "$0" value, or were they unable to quantify a value? It seems like the failure (assuming the games industry is bringing at least $1 to the region) is in their metrics rather than the gaming industry's earnings..


I would imagine that if gaming companies employ 200 people in the region, those people are not working for free. It must contribute something to the economy.
