Episode 124: Leon Zawada & Simon Rance (Amid Evil) & the future of gaming is a subscription

What happens if you try to make the perfect 90s shooter with modern technology? Leon & Simon from Indefatigable tried to do just that with their game Amid Evil
Jun 28, 2019

Leon Zawada and Simon Rance were next door neighbours and grew up playing Doom and Quake, before deciding to make their own games. You can see that inspiration in their newest game Amid Evil, a retro styled magical shooter  built with modern technology. If you like the speed of those nineties shooters, but with a contempory twist this could be the game for you. Amid Evil is now available on Steam, Humble Store and GOG.

Microsoft and Google are both making their video game subscription package push, and they want players to shell out each and every month to keep playing. With streaming a huge part of Google's Stadia will that be a viable option in countries that don't have internet that's up to scratch?
