Depth Takes a Holiday with Amanda Warner and Brianna Wu (Episode 84)


Giant Spacekat, founded by Brianna Wu and Amanda Warner, released their first game today: Revolution 60. It’s a cinematic-style, live-rendered game with rich dialog and interaction that employs strong female characters. Brianna is also a co-host of the Isometric podcast. We talk about illustration, independence, and meeting (and exceeding) expectations.
