At Techstars Startup Week Dallas this year, the Game Dev Deconstructed podcast recorded a live episode at NoD Coworking featuring two Dallas-based game developers — Nick Culbertson and Amir Rajan. Courtney Garza and I were the moderators.
Nick and Amir have developed some of the most-downloaded iOS app-based games and in this podcast episode, they generously and transparently share their views on creativity, design, and entrepreneurship.
Nick is the founder of Moby Pixel, an indie game and mobile app studio specializing in music related content. He hosts the Game Dev Deconstructed podcast recorded at NoD Coworking where he interviews guests exploring the game development process.
He has released more than 100 mobile apps for iOS & Android including Epic Orchestra, a swipe-based rhythm game set to classical music.
Amir is a pretty decent developer, and is constantly trying to improve in his craft.
He’s a jack of all trades, being comfortable with a number of platforms and languages. His claim to fame is A Dark Room Mobile. This RPG (role-playing game) conquered the world and took the No. 1 spot overall in the U.S. and UK App Stores. ADR, along with two of his other chart topping games, The Ensign and A Noble Circle, have been downloaded more than 3 million times combined.
Whether you’re looking to start your own game development studio or you just want some creative inspiration, go ahead and listen to this incredible episode of Game Dev Deconstructed.
