The creators of Castle Crashers have spoken out about their pals at Microsoft. The console and software giant has been getting a lot of poor press lately from independent developers.

In a recent Raptr Q & A, Emil Ayoubkhan, Project Manager at The Behemoth, said, "We have absolutely no problem with Microsoft or the XBLA team. We love working with them, and hopefully they enjoy working with us as well. I can’t speak for other devs that may have bad mouthed Microsoft in the past, but that’s definitely not the company that we are.”

That is quite a different tune from what other independent developers have said about Microsoft. The company has been accused of being difficult, inattentive, uncooperative, and dismissive of independent developers. With Sony's recent appeal to the independent developers in the PlayStation 4, a large number of XBLA alumni might be making the console hop very soon.
