This week, we head to Oxford to see Jason Kingsley and discuss Rebellion-owned 2000 AD as the developer has put out an open call for licensees on its wealth of intellectual property.
We also talk to GAME’s CEO Martyn Gibbs about the reasons behind the company’s tough 2016 and why 2017 is already looking far brighter.
Elsewhere, we have a chat with ID@Xbox’s EMEA regional lead Agostino Simonetta to discuss how Microsoft’s taking its self-publishing program to the next level and we discuss the point-and-clicks genre with developer Anuman Interactive and distributor PQube ahead of the release of Syberia 3.
