Makes sense. Lang I've understood as their main bizdev guy. Shouldering the weight of CEO on top of that is kinda tough. Boyes seems like the meticulous sort, as opposed to, well... Dave Lang.

That's great news, it's funny that they're back together again. I wonder if Johnny V got approached with the same deal.

"She will work Boyes, scaling the operation as he delivers new opportunities and growth."

“I couldn’t think of a single person in the world to take us to the next level.”

I feel that this outcome was pretty obvious. Once he left Sony, I had a feeling Iron Galaxy was the destination. Then Jeff tried to get Lang to break the news on the podcast. Glad to see Iron Galaxy doing well enough that they can hire a real suit.

Wow that's great - Congrats to Adam!! Of course, the triad will only be complete if Johnny V joins the ranks.

Personally, I'm still holding out for a Johnny V USA roadtrip adventure.

"As my first act as company CEO I'm officially announcing the hiring of a one John Vignocchi who will be in charge of what I'm calling codename: Midway."

Still all the best and I'm glad its working out well for both Dave and Adan.

Finally, Dave Lang can head the Sega Saturn development branch like he's always wanted.

Seriously, congrats to Adam, and I'm excited that he's on board with one of my favorite studios!

Finally. Windjammers 2 will be a PS4 exclusive and I guess Vita as well since they port those. Also, what happened to the Winnebago tour? :(

♫ The Boyes is back in town. 🎶

Guess who just got back today
That wild-eyed Boyes that had been away
Hadn't changed, hadn't much to say
But, man, I still think that cat's crazy

The Boyes is back in town
(I said) The Boyes is back in town
The Boyes is back in town
The Boyes is back in town

And that time over at Johnny's place
Well, this chick got up and she slapped Johnny's face
Man, we just fell about the place
That autocorrect wasn't your fault, forget her

The Boyes is back in town
(I said) The Boyes is back in town
The Boyes is back in town
The Boyes is back in town

Spread the word around
Guess who's back in town

You spread the word around

Friday night, they'll be dressed to kill
Down at Tuman’s Tap & Grill
The drink will flow and blood will spill
And if Lang wants to fight, you better let him

That jukebox in the corner blastin' out Johnny's favourite song
The nights are gettin' warmer, it won't be long
Won't be long 'til summer comes
Now that The Boyes is here again

The Boyes is back in town
(I said) The Boyes is back in town
The Boyes is back in town
The Boyes is back in town

Spread the word around!

In the event Boyes reads this: Hey I played Paragon with you a ways back and we got our asses kicked by bots.

You're pretty rad. Good luck with everything!

Guys, you're missing the other part of this news: Chelsea Blasko moved OUT of a Producer role. Seems like there's a Johnny V-shaped hole in the company currently...

Finally the full force of Dave Lang's expertise can be put to advancing strategies to monetize teens.

In case anyone was curious about Lang's new title since CEO and CPO are both now being used, he posted this on Twitter earlier.

Oh my god! This is just like that one time [person] left [company] to go work for [another company] that had ties to [company's rival]!!

I look forward to seeing Adam onstage at the MS press conference next year to announce KI2, and the first guest character, other Battletoad.
