We interviewed a number of very talented individuals from the video games industry in Issue 0 of Grab It Magazine, and after putting together our Top 50 iPad Indie Games of 2013, we thought we would reach out to them to see what made their list in what was a massive year in gaming.
First we introduced the top 10 from the fantastic David Helgason, CEO of Unity Technologies. You can read it here. We also have the top 10 from Boson X creator Ian MacLarty here, Formula Legend mastermind Nathan Harper here and the top 10 from Anomaly 2 developer 11 Bit Studios.
Today we have another incredibly talented and very influential guest, Ryan Payton. As the founder of Camouflaj, he spoke to us in-depth about the creation of his new game République for our Issue 0 cover story. His tale is stunning, leaving the “dream job” as creative director on Halo 4 to take a punt on an indie project that seemed impossible on paper – a stealth game of console quality using a touchscreen. He did it, too. The game is amazing and you should definitely read his no holds barred interview with us, as well as the insights from the game’s writer and design team.
But on to the top 10: he asked us to mention that number 1, is number 1, but the others are in no particular order.
(note: you can tap the game name to grab the game, and if you want to grab République you can do so here - for obvious reasons it is not on Payton's list, but it did make Helgason's!)
