How Do We Make This Game Fun | Programmer and 3D Artist Jordan Heaton
Jordan has a fascinating story about growing up in less than ideal circumstances, and even though he's always loved games, he was kinda guided away from a career in games. But of course, it crept into his life anyway. I talk to Jordan about Lord of the Rings, Elder Scrolls, modding, running a remote team, what having construction company can do for your game studio and much more.
