    The Ascent with Neon Giant's Arcade Berg & Tor Frick

    Ted Price chats with Arcade Berg and Tor Frick, Co-Founders and Creative Directors behind Neon Giant who recently released The Ascent. Together they discuss what it was like building a massive AAA title with a small team; how they balanced procedural construction with bespoke flourishes to create a rich and immersive detailed world; how constraints can be a key problem solving tool; and their advice for future game entrepreneurs. 

    Neon Giant is a Swedish video game studio founded in 2018. The Ascent is a solo and co-op Action-shooter RPG set on Veles, a packed cyberpunk world.

A great look at the industry from several sides. My personal favorites are Austin's interviews with fellow composers, but really, the whole show is just phenomenal.
