I talk to Nicklaus Liow and Jason Church, makers of the HTML5 game creation and remixing tool, Craftyy. In this interview, we learn what it is like to fail fast as a Silicon Valley start up. Craftyy got started when Nick and Jason took 1st place in the Start Up San Diego competition. Soon, they were accepted into the Mozilla WebFWD accelerator and funded Craftyy with a successful Kickstarter. But soon, Nick and Jason learned the lesson of letting raw momentum hide the lack of a cohesive vision.
