Podcast 001: Who is Regular Kevin?
In this episode, I speak with Kevin Neibert, game designer on ‘Livelock’, at Tuque Games. We discuss his background (he has a PhD!), and how he got into the business, his recent forays into PAX South and the ridiculousness that is Youtube comments. We also discuss our current gaming obsession ‘Helldivers’ and the possibilities of the newly minted VR space.
Kevin Neibert will be a regular collaborator to this podcast.
