Moving out of Dundee briefly GamesIndustry.biz also ventured to Glasgow to chat with David Thompson, VP of casual games developer Slam Games.
Slam was responsible for Vista launch game Spinword, and here Thompson explains his feelings on the casual games space, and why labelling people as "casual players" isn't right.
Q: What for you characterises what Slam is about?
David Thompson: I guess it's about finally making the games that we want to make, after spending to many years in the industry. It's not just a case of making games for the sake of making them, we want to make games that other people want to play as well.
So we've been pragmatic about striking a balance between being creative and actually being commercially aware as well - will something work for the market."
