During the spring I was lucky enough to head to Austin, Texas home of one of the most vibrant indie game communities in the world. While there I spoke to a number of developers on the scene, some of which appeared in a story broadcast on National Public Radio.
Of course, not everything makes it onto the air. I interviewed the team at Stoic, whose Kickstarter-funded game “The Banner Saga” is still highly anticipated.
That interview was set up by Zeb L. West, who worked with some of the Stoic team when they were all at BioWare. At that same interview West spoke eloquently about the democratization of video game development.
This trio of stories are my personal favorites of the year.
