That’s what he said

Last Friday, Reddit hosted an “Ask Me Anything” livestream for Mr. Game Director Hazzikostas and a few devs. I watched some of it unfold but had to go do something else about an hour into it. If you did not see it at the time, probably the easiest way to review it is to read … Continue reading That’s what he said
