GamesIndustry International Podcast: Develop in Brighton Special

Michael Pachter and Adrian Hon discuss the cloud, Rovio and fighting back against free

There's a special edition of the podcast this month, recorded on-site at Develop in Brighton. Joining us for the recording are Six to Start founder Adrian Hon and Wedbush Securities Equity Research MD Michael Pachter. A quick warning: watch your headphone volume with this one - recording on location has it's own challenges!

Michael Pachter is a name almost all of you will be familiar with. Famed for his headline-generating and influential commentary and insight, Pachter's presentation at Develop was typically replete with exuberance, full of his signature showmanship and half-in-jest predictions. He joined us in our suite to record this show immediately afterwards, to clarify some of his points and discuss the future of just about everything.

Offering a counterpoint to Michael's cheery cynicism is Adrian Hon, whose Six to Start studio most recently created Run, Zombie! a mobile fitness app which motivates users with a mixture of narrative driven encouragement and the constant threat of undead dismemberment. An ex-Mind Candy "fun director" with a background in neuroscience, Adrian's across-the-board experience offers him a uniquely penetrating insight into the industry.

As per usual, the podcast can be listened to in the Flash player below, downloaded here, or on iTunes.
