Kellee Santiago, former President of thatgamecompay and founding partner of Indie Fund is on the podcast this week. We discuss Kellee’s education at the University of Southern California’s School of Cinematic Arts and how a class she took her freshman year laid the foundation for her career in video game development. Kellee also talks about the creative inspirations and motivations behind each of the games developed by thatgamecompany. We also get to the whole “games are art” conversation, starting with her TED Talk. Finally, Kellee talks about the origins of Indie Fund and how a 3-year experiment has evolved into an indefinite opportunity for independent developers. Enjoy.
Update (2/28): Kellee mentions an announcement that she couldn’t comment on in the podcast, but now it’s official – she’s joining OUYA as Head of Developer Relations.
Run Time – 1:00:54
