Don’t Just be a Designer, be a Collaborator – Guest Blog by Nestor Tyr

It was a mid-May afternoon back a year ago when I first talked with Martin Looij from Keep Exploring Games.

Nonetheless, we agreed…

Alternative Themes with Andrew Russell Birkett

Andrew Russell Birkett has been an industry colleague for some years now, and he has produced a few games with what you wouldn’t really consider as standard theming.
