Interview Flow

What makes a great Game Dev Loadout interview? Effectively telling your story combined with solid audio quality. Using headphones while recording makes the audio quality better.

Part 1: We learn about your expertise.

  • Tell us a bit about your personal life and how you got started in the game industry.
  • What is something we probably don’t know about in your expertise that we should?
  • What mistakes are most common, even at a pro level?
  • Give us your key principles at becoming better at your expertise?

Part 2: Worst Moment and Lessons Learned

  • What was the worst moment you had in the game industry. That one moment that is still vivid in your mind. Be very detailed and tell us that personal story.
  • What do you want to make sure we take away from that?
  • What do you consider your biggest waste of time and what would you have replace that time with?
