The GamesIndustry.biz Podcast: A Guide To Remote Working

The team shares its own experiences of remote working as the world adapts to lockdown

In this special edition of the podcast, the GamesIndustry.biz team shares our own experience of remote working.

With so many countries around the world in varying stages of lockdown to prevent the spread of COVID-19, almost the entire industry has shifted to a work-from-home model that is a far cry from the way it usually operates.

We've already run a series of articles offering advice on how to adjust to this -- which you can read through the links below the podcast player -- but we wanted to contribute in our own way.

GamesIndustry.biz has always been run primarily from remote locations, as you might expect from a team distributed around the globe. While this means our experience may not be directly applicable to where everyone finds themselves now, there are tips, tricks and considerations we believe may be of value to those adjusting to working from home.
