Short talks by Perth game developers

This Friday I’ll be speaking first up about our experiences developing Square Off on the Xbox Live Indie Games platform. More information about the event can be found here: http://letsmakegames.org/2010/08/27/short-talks-by-perth-game-developers/. Thanks to Nick from onetwenty.org for organising the talks. I think it’s a great way for local developers to share experiences on their respective platforms and I’m really looking forward to hearing what the other three developers have to say! UPDATE: Video of the talk has now been posted on the tube – http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Qe4t6iyl8DQ

This should provide another interesting point to talk about.

Veteran Gamers interview – A belated blog post

The other week I got together with BigDaddy and Quanrian to discuss life, indie games and Square Off.
