In a an extensive two-part feature now available to read on Developmag.com (here and here) we’ve teamed up with UK independent single-format magazine 360 to quiz a number of leading Britsoft developers about the state of play for the games industry.

Part two, which looks at the difference between ‘artist’ games and commercial ones, the Hollywood model, and a single format for games, can be found here.
