Region Free Gamers: The Podcast Fluent in Gaming!

How Team 17 Revolutionized The Indie Genre

January 21, 2021

Today Geoff and Paul are joined by special guest and artist extraordinaire, Ryan Medlock (@videogamebear on Instagram) to talk about arguably the most successful British gaming developer and publisher, Team 17! First we catch up with Ryan and get some of his favourite platforming picks before heading into the Amiga era (of course!) and the birth of Team 17 (15:00). We talk about Alien Breed and some of their other earlier efforts (31:00) before moving on to the game that launched a thousand sequels, Worms! (45:30). Then we wrap up the show talking about Team 17's brilliant pivot to indie games with hits like Overcooked and Blasphemous (1:02:00)
