Sanatana and myself were fortunate enough to attend the Game Developers Conference this year and give a talk called Balancing Accessibility Against Depth in ‘Assault Android Cactus’, discussing the way in which we built our game to have a hardcore challenge but still retain an on-ramp for newcomers.
Fortunately this year the GDC organisers have made all of the Indie Summit talks available for anyone to view online, which means you can watch our talk here! It’s developer orientated, but if that’s your jam or you just really love game systems, be sure to check it out!
While we were in San Francisco, I sat down for one of my more candid interviews with Brendan Sinclair, who’s write-up recently went online at GameIndustry.biz called Life as an indie: Obscurity, triage, and trust issues. I discuss motivations for going indie in the first place, what development has been like and a little bit of what the future holds.
