Lightmap

Morgan Jaffit is Creative Director and co-founder of Brisbane's Defiant Development and our guest on our first episode for 2018. Morgan joined us to talk all about the making of hybrid action, tabletop style RPG Hand of Fate 2. With development of the first Hand of Fate title completed Morgan and the team turned their attention to perfecting the game design, and building on what they had learnt. We also spoke of Hand of Fate:Ordeals, the upcoming board game adaptation currently in production, a collaboration with fellow Queenslanders Rule & Make. Hand of Fate 2 is now available on PC, Playstation 4 and Xbox One. It's no secret that we love a good couch multiplayer game, but they may not be the financial winners that indie developers might hope they'll be. We also speak about Morgan's advice to up and coming indie developers that couch co-op & competitive games don't sell, and what other types of games they should focus on if they'd like to turn their hobby into a career.
