This week we speak to a master of animated gifs, Jacob Janerka. He’s a talent artist and designer and he’s working on his first game Paradigm, inspired by the weird and wonderful point and click adventure games made by Lucasarts and Sierra. We spoke about the challenges of making a game by yourself and the freedoms a one person dev team can bring. You can find more information about Paradigm over at http://www.paradigmadventure.com where you can download a demo right now.
