This week Dave is joined by CAA’s Derek Douglas to discuss Derek’s Game Dev Origin Story, and it’s unlike any we’ve had on the show previously. Derek focuses on Business Development, a side of the business that rarely gets discussed. So pull up a chair, free your mind, and turn up the volume. You just might learn something.

Oh also Dave’s mic is blown out a bit this episode. Sorry. Sorry everyone. Sorry. APMs up on this one.
