Mothergunship: Building on Tower of Guns

Joe Mirabello explores the winding road that led to Mothergunship shift from being a direct sequel to Tower of Guns to being its own identity, the logistically complex joint development of the game across two studios and 5000 miles, and the time spent supporting Mothergunship since release. There will be animated gifs of artwork. Hopefully. If Joe can remember how to make them.
