A Danny free zone this podcast as we delve into the world of writing for computer games and interactive entertainment in general. We tried to get somewhere quiet at the London Screenwriters Festival and gather around a microphone. A bit hit and miss with the sound, but wise words all the same.

Alongside Tim are:
* Steve Ince (20 years writing games, stretching back to the original Broken Sword and In Cold Blood)
* Rudolf Kremers (independent producer at OmniLabs whose EufloriaHD comes out for PSVita tomorrow!)
* Tony Lee (multi format writer who is best known for comics and books but who worked on games in his early days)

We talk about how to get into the business, how to start, the opportunities out there and how to go it alone and just make stuff.
