Interview: Xander Davis – From Triple A To Indie Gaming On Apple TV 4K (Part One)

Basic RGB

For those of you playing catch-up, last week was a big week for Apple TV gaming. Independent studio Astrogun released Apple TV’s first platform exclusive – an anime-inspired sci-fi FPS, titled VAST.

Astrogun’s fearless leader – Xander Davis – was kind enough to set aside time for an interview, with the result being a fascinating, deep dive into his journey from work on Triple A games, to independence with Astrogun, and the pros and cons of working with consumer tech giant Apple.

If, like me, you enjoy glimpses behind the curtain at the machinations of game development, and the stories of artists and auteurs exploring their craft, then I’m certain you’ll find this a satisfying read.
