A great look into game development!

Paul is a great interviewer, asking the questions you would want to ask the developers of your favourite games! It is always fun seeing what dev is on the latest episode.

Good deep dive into the people behind the games

PJ is a dedicated journo who takes his work to the next level with Dev Diary. Interesting guests with even more interesting stories to tell. Always enjoy finding out more about the people who make the games we love
