Why All 4 Games is ex­pect­ing to court left­field de­vel­op­ers

Macdon­ald has cited Devolver Dig­i­tal as an in­spi­ra­tion for its com­mit­ment to push­ing de­vel­op­ers to the fore, but, given Chan­nel 4’s rep­u­ta­tion for dis­rup­tion, does he also fore­see the­matic sim­i­lar­i­ties? “We don’t want to do only edgy games,” he tells us. “We just want great games. But my ex­pec­ta­tion is that they’ll prob­a­bly trend to­wards be­ing a bit edgier than most pub­lish­ers would be in­ter­ested in – partly be­cause of who we are and what we’re in­ter­ested in. So I’m quite happy for that to be the slant we have on things, but by no means is it all we want to look at.”
