Banner Saga Composer Fined Over Rejected AFM Agreement
It seems there is no shortage of problems The Banner Saga runs into. Even after escaping the ridiculous trademark dispute invoked by social gaming company King, one of the major creative forces within the developer Stoic has now run into an entirely new mess. Renowned for his work on the likes of Journey and flOw, composer Austin Wintory is being fined $50,000 by the American Federation of Musicians. His crime? Breaching an agreement which was forced on the AFM members, and widely rejected by the video game industry as a whole.
