GDC 2017 Special (Part 1)

Martha and Mark were in San Fransisco for the Game Developers Conference, and there was so much to say we had to split it into two episodes!

While Stephen was holding down the fort back home, we were joined in San Fransisco by Nice Games Club’s in-house “special reporter” Dylan Skerbitz.
