Every few days / weeks / months we aim to bring you a new installment of development Banter, a podcast we run which is entirely dedicated to discussing the development of the mods and indie games. Our aim is to line up cool developers from interesting upcoming and complete projects, and grill them about their work, ask them the tough questions and hopefully entertain you in the process.

So tune in (watch this group and join this group) if you have always wanted to listen to a show about Developers doing what they do best, making the Mods and Games that we all love to play. Consider development banter a laid back chat entertaining advice line for the ModDB community.

That was actually funny. It also happened some time ago, with the live modcast. I always think (in such cases) that one of the guys (Ryan or Dave) is typing what the others should say :))
Anyway, glad to hear you guys again!
