Hello and welcome to the Kwalee Podcast, where myself, Matthew Barter, the Ambassador and Content Manager at Kwalee, will sit down with industry leaders to unravel the stories behind successful games. In this episode, I am joined by Simon Platt, our Head of Development. With over 12 years in the games arena and a track record of steering dev teams through the creation of 150 titles, including chart-toppers on the Apple App Store and Google Play, Simon brings a wealth of experience.
