Glen Henry is something of a leading voice in the Jamaican game development scene, partly by accident (by virtue of simply being a “persistent” voice in the space) and partly on purpose (by virtue of his own podcast Build It and They Will Play, where he talks to other creative folks in the Caribbean sphere about what they do, how they do it, and how they keep it sustainable).

Here he talks about that role—and also, of course, about his own growing catalog of games, which take an experimental approach to genre, and to combinations of genres, in service of making things that his ten-year-old self would have found cool.

You can get Questlike: Pocket on Android, and the rest of the Spritewrench catalog on Steam.
