West London Games is a British independent game studio founded by Russ Clarke to develop the ultimate exploration and combat game, TerraTech.  Russ has previously worked at London’s Ideaworks mobile studio until 2012. He developed the first prototype for TerraTech by himself shortly afterwards, pulling in his experience from working on beloved franchises like Metal Gear, Call of Duty, Resident Evil, Tomb Raider and Fable. After spending some time working as a consultant he returned to the TerraTech prototype to turn his vision into a full blown indie project.

Join us as we discuss the radical growth of “Let’s Plays” and how they can be beneficial to the developer. Moreover, we start with his first machine, the BBC Micro, and how the experiences for gamers in the UK contrasted those of gamers in the US in the 80s and early 90s.

We’re joined this week by James Parker, of Opposable Games. 

Founded out of the UK in 2011, the studio is comprised of veteran console and mobile developers.
Their first iOS release was Clockwork Racers – a throwback to 90s local multiplayer games such as Micro Machines. Their current project, Salvaged, is the culmination of their ambitions in multi-screen game development, and does a phenomenal job of illustrating novel ways of using a second screen. You can find it currently on Kickstarter, too.

This week I’m joined by seven gentlemen from the PHL Collective. Nick Madonna, Terry dee-fel-ee-cee-an-toe-nee-oh, Ryan Reed, Bren King, Brian Gitlin, Vincent Erhard, John Sepa, all of whom  are based out of Philadelphia.

Their first title, Knight Strike is an old-school arcade style game where you will battle endless hordes of enemies which get harder to beat the further into the game you get. It is also currently available on Steam Greenlight.

Noodle Arm Royale was built in two days as part of a rapid prototype/internal game jam. The game was specifically built to sit in an art gallery space and be the most ridiculous and irreverent installation in the place.
