[Editor’s note: We have a new thing! Zach will soon be kicking off Indie Whatever, his new series on independent game development, so we welcome you check it out!]
I’ve always been the type of person that loves knowing how things were made and how they work; in every interest I have it’s something that I always seek out. When I play a game I want to know who wrote it, who voices each character, who had the idea for that certain section, who decided on this design choice, etc. I just love knowing about the inner workings of creative projects. Obviously my biggest passions in life are writing and video games.
This new editorial series is something super ambitious. I want to use Indie Whatever to feature independent creators and their games, their art, programming, level design, writing, etc. Everything that has to do with the making of a game can be a highlight. It’s very wide open to give me the ability to do whatever I want.
With this series I plan to have a podcast or editorial depending on the person or game I want to cover.
There might be a week where it’s just me talking over a game and the cool things about it, or I might be interviewing some its creators Who knows! I want to keep this series flexible and also be able to talk about pieces of art, games and people that I think are cool/underrated.
I am aiming to do this series twice a month. It’ll be a constantly growing and changing experience and I hope all of you will join me and support this unique vision I have for games media.

I’m aiming to have a piece up on June 7th, so get ready!
