Kai Ashford-Hatherly joins us this week to talk about his new game Bellus Mortem as well, and we speak to Jon Hayward and Jess Watson of the Perth Games Festival in this double interview episode!
First up on the show today we talk about the worst players online who ruin the multiplayer for everyone. Riot Games makers of the extremely popular League of Legends, have implemented a new system where the worst players online miss out completely on free loot. Other games such as Hearthstone by Blizzard have opted out of online chat entirely, using emotes and phrases instead.
If you are in Western Australia this weekend you can check out the Perth Games Festival, a celebration of WA game dev talent. We spoke to Jon Hayward and Jess Watson from Let’s Make Games who organised the Perth Games Festival. It’s on the 28th of November 2015 at the Perth Town Hall, and tickets are free. Head to perthgamesfestival.com.au for all the details.
Finally for our first in studio interview Kai Ashford-Hatherly, from RW Games joined us and told us all about his new game Bellus Mortem which has just launched on Kickstarter. We asked why they went Kickstarter over other funding methods.
