The Quiet Games Magazine, Starlink and PlayStation Memories

Today I wanted to trial something a little bit different. I’ve been discussing how I want to do a more informal style blog, where I share what’s going on in our game’s development or just general thoughts about the video game industry as a whole. So today I’ve kind of chucked together a few different things that were on my mind.

New Zealand’s Small, But Growing, Game Development Scene
