The Academy of Interactive Arts & Sciences (AIAS) is pleased to announce the launch of The AIAS Game Maker’s Notebook, a new podcast featuring a series of in-depth, one-on-one conversations between game makers. Hosted by Ted Price, Board Member of the Academy of Interactive Arts & Sciences and Founder & CEO of Insomniac Games, this podcast will provide a thoughtful, intimate perspective on the business and craft of interactive entertainment.
“I’m excited to host the ‘The AIAS Game Maker’s Notebook’ because I think developer-to-developer conversations can reveal perspectives, truths, ideas and stories that often remain untold,” said Price. “My hope is that other developers and even prospective developers can learn a lot from the industry leaders who are on the show. And for me personally, having candid conversations with many of the people I respect most in this industry is a lot of fun and incredibly fulfilling.”
“This is the perfect medium for the Academy to delve deeper into the inner workings of game makers and game making,” said Meggan Scavio, President, Academy of Interactive Arts & Sciences. “We plan on having a wide-ranging series of conversations with renowned and emerging voices. We want this to be a fun, informative conversation for everyone that loves games to participate in and shape over time.”
Episode one from The AIAS Game Maker’s Notebook is available to listeners starting today on iTunesm and most podcast applications. Subsequent episodes will be published on a bi-weekly basis, featuring interviews with prominent individuals from different disciplines within interactive entertainment.
The AIAS Game Maker’s Notebook Season One includes interviews with Brendan Greene aka PLAYERUNKNOWN of PUBG, Robin Hunicke, designer, producer and CEO at Funomena, and Hermen Hulst, Managing Director at Guerrilla, just to name a few.
