16 - Geek - Game Design; Beasts of Balance with Tim Burrell-Saward

Lead designer at Sensible Object, Tim Burrell-Saward, joins Robin for a chat about the Beasts of Balance development process, turning a co-op game into something with more teeth, and what dinosaur he'd be.




Beasts of Balance is a co-operative, app empowered, stacking game. It's beautiful, tactile, and a lot of fun and gets the Coaching for Geeks first ever 'recommended' award.
