This week’s show is a chat with two of the leading lights from the League of Geeks, co-founder and design director Blake Mizzi and lead producer Lisy Kane.
It’s a really fun chat with two people I admire a great deal in the local scene and we spend a lot of time talking about the culture they’ve cultivated at the company as well as how their great game, Armello, has evolved over the years since its launch.
The very first time I visited Melbourne’s indie game developer hub, The Arcade, a good few years ago I met some of the fine folks from League of Geeks. I always loved their passion for making polished games and their attitude toward building a positive and inclusive company.
Blake kicks us off with his thoughts on founding the studio back in 2011.
