Collateral Damage is a multiplayer area brawler featuring a cast of unique characters and diverse fighting styles and Perth’s very own Matthew Sears and Jak Gem from Artisans Games joined us this week. The game is currently in beta, and they spoke about taking the game to shows, and learning from how players play their game.

 

We also spoke about the economics of games pricing and what it means to go “free to play“. This topic was inspired by an article written by Sergey Galyonkin , developer of the database analysis tool Steam Spy, aired his concerns about the low prices of some indie titles and how this could be doing hard working developers a disservice.
