EB Games Expo: IMG Interviews Evokemethod & Pub Games
6:00 AM | Andrew Lennox | 1 comment

Today brings us to part two of our series on the EB Expo. In this part we talked to Mustafa Wahidi from Evokemethod and Andrew Dickinson from Pub Games, who showed us their games Dream Chaser and Blast Points. Both these games really highlight the evolution of genres that we have all grown to love over the past few years. In the interviews we gain more insight into these small teams and how they manage time spent between their full time jobs and the hobbies they enjoy the most.

Also, along with these interviews, we have posted the full gallery of images showing you what was at the EB Expo. Each booth had its own character and feeling. The following images were among my favourite.

We hope you enjoyed our coverage. It was really great talking to these developers and getting them to tell their story. It is very easy to get lost in all they eye candy of Halo 4 or Assassins Creed 3, but it seems very apparent to me that the real heroes of this expo were the independent developers.

A special thank you must go out to the developers who took out time to talk to us as well as the people of EB Games for allowing us to cover it all. We hope to return again next year!

Any angry thoughts, any childlike disobedience is buried deep beneath a seemingly impenetrable surface of sweetness. But how long will these feelings stay hidden?
