Ryan Laukat (President of Red Raven Games) is unlike any guest we've ever had on Game Academy Radio. Yes, he's an indie developer, and yes he has released his fair share of indie games, so what makes him different? He's a board game designer! Even so, there are a ton of parallels between developing indie video games and indie board games (as you will discover for yourself in our interview), meaning there is a lot you can learn from Laukat's story.
During the interview, we discuss his amazing success on Kickstarter (amazing is an understatement), his back catalog of rich board games, and his upcoming game The Ancient World. We also learn about his how he playtests his games, how he finds his great ideas, and so much more. Whether you are an avid board game player or haven't touched a board game since grade school, there are many lessons indie developers on the video game side of things can still learn. A fascinating interview with an individual with an amazing work ethic, this is one interview you won't want to miss.
Hosted by Dusty Wright, Game Academy Radio is the official weekly radio show of GameAcademy.com.
