Indie Game Development with Benjamin Rivers

Downtime Podcast talks this week with Toronto-based indie game developer, Benjamin Rivers, to talk about being a one-man band and creating an experience.

Once again we were able to get an informative and passionate guest on our show! Talking with Ben was very inspirational in learning what it takes to make your own game. In a generation where information is readily available, all the resources are right in front to be your own indie developer, but just as important is the ethic to learn and repeat. Ben dives not only into the technical process but creative process in writing the story and characters that appeal to the player. There’s so much to know, and it’s available in the next episode.
