A Timely Adventure with Cartoon Network

Three developers spent fourteen months creating a fairly ambitious mobile game for Cartoon Network based on the popular TV show Adventure Time. Was it a success? What was it like working for a big publisher like Cartoon Network? Why would Cartoon Network want to work with an unknown developer like TwinSky Games? How come there are goats in this game? Hear the answer to these questions and more!

Presented by Tim Winsky

adventuretimTim Winsky has made games forever, but only quit his day job a mere two years ago to go “full indie,” whatever that means. Now he can finally justify talking about video games all day. He has a passion for good design and things that are wacky, crazy, and just a little bit nutty.
