The Game Developer's Playlist: Ultima 7 with Megan Fox | Podcast

Glass Bottom Games founder explores the impact of the 1992 RPG on her career

The latest episode The Game Developers' Playlist is now available to download.

This special series of The GamesIndustry.biz Podcast talks to developers about the titles that influenced their careers.

This time, we have Megan Fox -- founder of Skatebird developer Glass Bottom Games -- discussing the impact of Ultima 7, the 1992 systems-driven RPG.

She reflects on how the use of the game's systems opened up player freedom, and the evolution of similar mechanics in genres such as survival games.

Game Developer's Playlist is an extension of a series we run on the site called Why I Love, in which developers explore their favourite games. You can find these articles here.

Title music by Julian Villareal.
