Weirdest Things at GDC

Fireflies Aaron and Nick went over to San Francisco recently to attend GDC 2018. Among all the talks, sessions, games and technology on show there was a bunch of weird things to discover… So here’s our top picks! Watch as Nick struggles to make a bowl of ramen, some American chap with a radio voice does a llama rap and Firefly resists the temptation to ‘grab dem crayons’.

Meet the Team

This week we premiere our second new series this month, the ‘Meet The Team’ series! These videos will be dedicated to getting to know each member of Firefly Studios. We’ll be asking them what they do, how they do it, and how they got to where to they are today – and that’s just for starters! Want to know what their favourite game is? Or how many shameful hours they have dedicated to it? Then stick around because those questions are just part of the gauntlet we’ll be putting our devs here at the studio through.

Remember to like and subscribe if you enjoyed the video and stay tuned for more installments of the ‘Meet The Team’ series as we reveal all (not really) about the ladies and gents who make up Firefly Studios.
