In this episode we’ll hear from Gary Burchell of Fireblade Software.
Fireblade Software is the creator of Abandon Ship - a single-player PC game which lets the player take command of a ship and her crew. The game hit the giddy heights of fourth in the Steam Global Top Sellers chart on the night of its release, and I definitely wanted to find out more about what went into that.
But Gary has experience on both sides of the fence in this industry. Before forming his own indie studio, he spent 13 years at Climax Studios, where he worked his way up to the role of Executive Producer.
I was curious to hear his thoughts on how things have changed over the years. Particularly, for graduates who are looking to break into the industry by getting their first jobs.
