Matthew Doucette says the Yarmouth location for his and his brother’s video game company is what has given Xona Games its edge. “In a larger centre, we’d be a drop in a pond. But by staying close to our roots, we’ve managed to stick out enough to get the attention, recognition and support that helped take us to the next level.”
I don't even remember saying this, but I probably did! Credentials shared with Jason Doucette, lead programmer of our games. Link to full NSBI 2009/2010 Annual Report to come as soon as they post it online!
