Episode 51: The Problem with Freemium Games with Late Panda

We had the pleasure of snagging an interview with fellow TDLers, Elisabeth Heed and Stephen McCallum, from across the pond in Glasgow, Scotland. In this episode we talk about how the freemium game model, which is rapidly monopolizing the various app stores, can be seen as having very negative effects on the mobile game market, indie game developers, and the game industry at large.

Stephen and Ellie also outline some of the steps they are taking to integrate premium content in their latest title, Skorian Tales, in a less intrusive and more integrated way. We had a ‘pure dead brilliant’ time speaking with them and we hope that you enjoy it as well!

Thanks for tuning in this week and we hope you enjoy the show! Feel free to send any emails with comments, questions, and concerns about the freemium game model in the game industry to: thedebuglog@gmail.com
