Words on Play: Episode 1

A new podcast series by developers, for developers

Words on Play is a podcast by a group of independent game developers, where we chat about industry issues, development and, of course, games.

In the last year there's been a huge growth in the number of games studios here in sunny Brighton in the UK, and we're lucky enough to be a part of that. Being able to share information (and beers) with tons of interesting developers is really great, but it's even better to be able to share that with everyone.

With Words on Play we aim to bring a developer perspective to the topics that interest you and (once we drag them into guesting on the show) let you peer into the minds of some of the UK's most talented developers. Whether you're a student looking to get into the industry, a fellow developer or just a gamer with a dull commute to fill, Words on Play is for you.

In this opening episode the panel discusses the hot-topic of Kickstarter funding and just exactly what it means to be an "indie developer".

In this first edition, Rob Sienkiewicz presents and is joined by his fellow Second Impact Games director, Rowen Holt. Alongside them are Mark Knowles-Lee, Creative Director of Origami Blue Studio and Iain Gilfeather, Technical Director at Fat Pebble.

Between them our guests have many years experience as professional game developers for top UK studios and several bad jokes.
