Do you want to work in games? Does the very idea of working on awesome franchises like Ratchet & Clank, Counter Strike, and Oddworld sound way better than digging ditches or spinning signs? We think so! Michael Bross talks about his twenty year career in games music and what kind of work and dedication has gone into creating the sonic landscapes of some of the greatest games in history. Keeping to the humor of Ratchet & Clank while keeping it big and working according to subjective definitions of "epic", he talks about the rewarding challenges of working on it along with team members to maintain the game's signature feel throughout the years. Quick side note and life tip: if you haven't played the new Ratchet & Clank, take my advice, get it immediately and treat yourself!
Along with this in-depth conversation about working in the games industry and keeping fresh with its quickly evolving nature, we shine The Kickstarter Spotlight on Masquerada: Songs and Shadows by Witching Hour Studios. Before that, a soulful, passionate explanation about the missing Monthly Wrap-Up episode.
