Today’s episode I’m speaking with Nina Roussakoff. Nina’s journey into games began nearly 15 years ago with her roles adapting to the needs of the studios she worked at ranging from QA tester and programmer to Lead Scripter on Beyond A Steel Sky. Currently she’s the game director on the title Paleo Pines by the studio Italic Pig. In this episode we discuss managing teams with compassion, the mental weight of working as a director, and how to survive in the industry as a marginilized person.
