I recently had the opportunity to speak to Spearhead Games co-founders Simon Darveau and Malik Boukhira on what it means to leave AAA development and create your own studio. Within one year Spearhead went from non-existent to shipping their first game, Tiny Brains, on the PC, PS3, and PS4, which is quite an accomplishment.

But they also learned a lot from the indie development process, and that it wasn't just "shipping a game." You also have community management, PR, and marketing to worry about. As a result, Darveau and Boukhira have vowed to improve the way they approach the community, and have started a weekly Twitch show.

It'll run on Thursdays at 7PM EST on their channel, and will focus on interacting with fans and learning what they want to see more of in their games, as well as sharing the process of game development with anyone who is interested. Stay tuned for our full interview with Spearhead, coming in the next week or so.

Review: Tiny Brains

Couch co-op is sadly rare these days. Although I grew up playing games locally throughout my entire childhood, more often than not, split- or same-screen play is axed in favor of packing in more online features. Whether it's ...more

Co-op puzzle game Tiny Brains headed to the PlayStation 4

I got a chance to play Tiny Brains at PAX East this year, and it was definitely one of the best and probably most overlooked games at the show. I had three friends with me playing it, and the four-player synergy was just...more

PAX: Tiny Brains will make a big splash

The PAX East booth for Tiny Brains is what lured my three friends and I near. Blue beakers filled with brains, the exhibitors wearing lab coats, and the promise of cooperative play was too much to resist. I am super happy th...more

N++ is going to break me, but I'm okay with that

One of the games I knew I had to check out at the Indie Megabooth this PAX Prime was N++. I liked its predecessor on Xbox Live Arcade a great deal, which is to say it infuriated the hell out of me but was satisfying beyond wo...more

Iron Fisticle looks a bit like Robotron x Gauntlet

Curve Digital made a name for itself in recent years by porting popular independent games like The Swapper and Thomas Was Alone to PlayStation platforms but Iron Fisticle, an upcoming twin-stick arcade arena shooter, is anoth...more

Shadow Realms, the new BioWare RPG, has a lot of strong and unique ideas

Anytime you sit in on an early look at a new videogame, the presentation's sort of structured the same. Throughout the introduction to the title, the developers always -- always -- pepper the speech with catchy phrases a...more
