Dean Razavi is an indie-developer-turned-indie-producer, currently working at Akupara Games. Here is talks about that studio’s newest release, Kardboard Kings, as well the “indies for indies” ethos that drives his work. Along the way, we talk about the importance of collaboration even on solo projects, the challenge of building and rebuilding communities around games, and the gravitation pull of games that become genres (or at least genre touchpoints) unto themselves.

You can get Kardboard Kings on Steam starting February 10.
You can see the entire Akupara Games catalog on their website.
