Thanks for subscribing to GameMakers.
- Last week, industry heavyweights Eric Kress, Tim Morten, and Ed Zobrist joined me to discuss F2P monetization, including good vs. evil practices.
- During our session with USC students, a Q&A ensued, which went a bit far afield from the focus on F2P monetization. So I am publishing the Q&A part separately this week.
