Interview

We often do interviews with developers with the aim of getting to know them, and tell the same to our audience by putting up the interview on our website and sharing it across our social media platforms. Our goal with these interviews is to have a form of developer profile on our website where developers can talk about themselves, the games they make, and the games they like to play. We even ask about things that matter to them outside of video games.
