“With this check I have just written, we have paid of all the old Devil’s Due Productions Hack/Slash debt! We are out of the red, except for the blood spray everywhere.”
DDP was the original distributor of Hack/Slash. Seeley left because he wasn't being paid in a timely manner. The debate was, does he stay with DDP in hopes of getting some of his money, or does he bail, forcing DDP under and losing all that revenue?
Looks like there was more going on than we realized.
Either Seeley didn't read that contract very well, or Josh Blaylock didn't let him go so easy....
