Soundbytes Podcast - EP 4 - Pre-GDC

February 1, 2017

Hello! Welcome back to the fourth episode of our monthly podcast about games and game audio. In light of GDC being at the end of Febuary, we decided that for this episode we'd delve into some pre-GDC advice, specifically aimed at newcomers, and some general networking tips. We also answered a few listener questions. 

Hosted by:

Derek Brown - @subwoofersub
