Resources for Game Makers (with Evva Kraikul)

Our interview episodes feature one or more guests to talk about a single topic in-depth, sharing their insights and experiences.

Without Glitch, there would be no Nice Games Club, so we were very happy to welcome the Executive Director and co-founder of Glitch, Evva Kraikul, to share with us what it takes to build a community of game makers, how to get involved, and the “small moments that define a community.”
