Hey and welcome to another Game Savvy podcast. I sat down with Ben, Chris and Socrates from Hyroglyphik Games to discuss their up and coming game, King Of The Hat!
We used Google hangouts which was cool because it really did feel like we hung out. The guys were so laid back and funny it was great hanging out with them for a bit just to talk about their game and their latest Kickstarter.
You can check out their Kickstarter at https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1566864251/king-of-the-hat?ref=activity and keep up with them on their website at http://www.kingofthehat.com/ which has all their social media links and updates on King Of The Hat.
