This week we had the opportunity to speak to Perth based developer Matt Comi of Big Bucket. Matt filled us in on two of his games “The Incident” and “Space Age” as well as how the development process differed between the two titles.

What is Microsoft’s motivation behind the sudden progressive attitude?
