Thanks to some gracious networking help from Patreon supporter Mark Feller and Indie Gamer Chick, this time we’re hearing from LEGO games veteran and current Huey Games CEO/Creative Director Rob Hewson! As has become a beautiful show tradition, we open up by discussing what everyday game development is like in the guest’s part of the world. Rob’s team has won a grant from the UK Games Fund which is helping his team carry on the family business–his father and co-founder is UK game industry legend Andrew Hewson, whose game products in the 80s and early 90s are the inspiration for some of the very games they’re publishing today.
