More trouble for Team Bondi ensues after issues with developers being left uncredited on their recent hit L. A. Noire. The International Game Developers Association (IGDA), the professional society of videogame developers, is investigating Team Bondi after reports of misconduct at the developer's office.

The point of the investigation can be entirely summed up by IGDA chair Brian Robbins:

Quote
"Certainly reports of 12-hour a day, lengthy crunch time, if true, are absolutely unacceptable and harmful to the individuals involved, the final product, and the industry as a whole.

"We encourage any Team Bondi employee and/or family member to email qol@igda.org with comments about the recent past and current situation - positive or negative."


Team Bondi employees were reportedly forced to work over 110 hours a week without overtime pay and the studio boss was reported to be abusive to staff.

Long hours of work with no overtime? An abusive boss? It sounds quite like the regular life of a videogame developer. I'm sure what's happening at Team Bondi is fairly common practice with some development studios. Team Bondi was just unlucky enough to have whiney employees, which isn't a bad thing. Good on Team Bondi's employees. I know I'd be pissed if I worked 110 hours a week without overtime.
