Jon and Dirk are paid a visit by regular guest Soren Johnson, who stops by to talk about his brand-new studio ‘Mohawk Games’ and their first project, ‘Mars’, an economic RTS built out of the legacy of Dani Bunten’s venerable M.U.L.E. They discuss the challenges of and goals behind Soren setting up his own shop, and what he hopes the unique game will achieve. Soren also reveals the first game to ever make him cry. And trust us, it’s fitting.
It’s a good time whenever we have Soren on, but it was especially great having him on to celebrate and discuss his leap into indie development.
Soren and I have quite a bit in common, and it should come as no surprise that our plans and goals are fairly similar. Still, we don’t see eye-to-eye on everything and spent part of this episode having a lively debate about the merits of Kickstarter VS Steam Early Access. Give it a listen!
