Devolvin' and Debauchin'
You guys might've seen the charming, casual, laid-back interview I did with Devolver Digital's Nigel Lowry.

We discuss the company's roots, it's future plans, and where they intend to go beyond game publishing and movie producing. Porn? Sure, why not. read feature

Literally the first thing I did at GDC this year was sit down with Capy Games president Nathan Vella and talk about their upcoming games Super Time Force and Below, as well as his hosting duties at this year's IGF awards.
