Before working at Heavy Iron, I worked at a small doomed games company in England called Rage. After our studio was closed as a cost cutting exercise I came to America. A few of my other friends started Moonpod. Since then they’ve released a game called Starscape and are currently in the final stages of their second game 'Mr Robot'.
Moonpod write a monthly developer diary, which talks about what they’re working on, shows lots of pictures, and discusses the issues they’re facing. I find it a great read, and highly recommend it to any novice or professional game programmer.
