Enjoying the reads, thanks.

Such a different world to what I've known as a solo artist, erm one-man-band, erm someone who does 50 developer jobs but still hasn't done the music (yet)!

Looking forward to hearing from your coders if there's an upcoming interview in the works. But I understand if they're all extremely busy.

An interesting read - good to see how larger studios do it!

Plague Inc. - Can you infect the world - over 200 million games played!

Check out the new and very cool cinematic trailer

Next one lined up is from an Art Director I believe, but we'll get round to the programmers eventually.

Being a Producer myself I found this article hitting home. Being relatively new to the industry it's good to see that my thought process and actions match those of Producers at other successful companies.

If I had to add one thing about being a Producer it's that being objective in all your decisions is one of the most important aspects a Producer can have.
