There's a terrific new featured blog post up at www.gamasutra.com called "How Crimson: Steam Pirates (#1 game on iPad) Was Built in just 12 Weeks." In this detailed post, AJ Bolden, lead developer for Crimson: Steam Pirates discusses exactly how they used Moai and built their own tools to get productive and build the top-rated iPad game soup-to-nuts in 12 weeks.

We interviewed Jordan Weisman and Aljernon Bolden of Harebrained Schemes, as well as Patrick Meehan, creator of Moai. The three of them talk about why/how Harebrained Schemes used Moai to make last week's #1 free app on iPad, Crimson: Steam Pirates, and the purpose behind the Moai platform.
