Interview with Serenity Forge Founder Zhenghua “Z” Yang

Based out of Colorado, Serenity Forge is an indie developer-turned-publisher. The company developers its own games but also publishers the indie games of other studios, including the recent Four Sided Fantasy, a puzzle-platformer centered around screen-wrap and locking the game camera in order to overcome environmental challenges.

Founder and CEO of Serenity Forge, Zhenghua Yang, or Z, as he prefers to be called, was onsite at IndieCade 2016 at the University of Southern California in Los Angeles in order to help promote the recent launch of Four Sided Fantasy.

I talked with him about Serenity Forge and the state of indie development and publishing today.


Interview with Logan Fieth of Ludo Land

Four Sided Fantasy was developed by Seattle-based indie developer Ludo Land, a studio that consists primarily of graduates from the DigiPen Institute of Technology. In the Digital Selects tent at IndieCade 2016, held this year at the University of Southern California in Los Angeles, I was able to chat with Four Sided Fantasy’s lead designer and programmer Logan Fieth. With the game already out, our conversation instead focused on Ludo Land’s origins at DigiPen and why indie developers might decide to partner with small indie-focused publishers.
