thatgamecompany - from thesis work to Sony moneymaker

For those of you not in the flow, Jenova Chen was working on a thesis on “flow theory,” and he came up with this game (Myra talked about flow theory in a recent article). Sony saw it, and paid for it. Now it’s going to start selling on the PS3’s online store starting December 19 as a downloadable game.

Jenova Chen co-founded thatgamecompany. The developer’s website (thatgamecompany.com) has the original PC Flash-based version.
