Episode 16: Mike Blackney (Dead Static Drive)

Creating the American Dream

Horror has always been something that's inspired Mike Blackney, and through his days working mobile games, cricket titles and much more, ideas had been stewing. Finally, they culminated in Dead Static Drive, and so Mike joins Paul in this new entry of Dev Diary to talk about his game development journey, the origins of Dead Static Drive, what it's like to know nothing of Cricket, yet develop a game based upon it, presenting your game on the Xbox E3 stage and much more.
