Look, you'd be terrified too, alright? That dragon is frightening.

Episode 7 of Bit Transmission is now available for your listening pleasure. Joining us for the show is Gaijin Games CEO, Alex Neuse. We talk about their highly epic Bit.Trip series, something Jonathan Holmes has worked up an extensive theory on. Plus some discussion on the trials and tribulations of being an independent developer and we touch briefly on the games as art debate.
