Join our live Twitch broadcast on Wednesday, August 5th at 9:00am PDT as we talk with Susan Cummings of Tiny Rebel Games. We can’t wait to hear how her small team landed some of the most beloved IP on the planet, then delivered the stellar mobile app that was just the thing to do it justice. We’ll also get her thoughts on game design in general, what it means to be social, and taking advantage of Twitch as a new channel for building community around your game.
As always, we’ll also force our guest to weigh in on our Twitch concept game, Planet Destroyer. After hearing the spiel and seeing a demo, we’ll ask her to give it to us straight: we want the unvarnished truth, her honest opinion of the idea and how we should realize it.
If you haven’t seen the show yet, it’s called Planet Destroyer: Concept to Greenlight. It’s an experiment dreamed up by Paul Cutsinger, designed to explore live programming and game development on Twitch. The goal? Figure out how to code on the air, create a game, and make it a fun Twitch experience. Along the way, we’re bringing in experts from around the industry, hitting them up for free advice and the kernels of wisdom they’ve gained from years building games.
Join the conversation every morning, Tuesday through Friday, and hear what the industry vets have to say about game design, architecture, music, story, business models, crowd funding, coding, art, and everything in between.
