Special Interview – Daniel Solis

We had the absolute privilege of sitting down with Daniel Solis for an hour. Daniel is a game designer well known for being open to discuss all parts his process and this interview is no exception! We get into everything from mechanics vs. theme to a rare behind the scenes peek into publishing finances and licensing. We learned so much from Daniel and we hope you do too!
