Leveling Up Your Studio While Being Empathetic
By now, most of you should know that this podcast is about the marketing and business of indie games. But another core theme carried throughout the show is empathy.
We’ve talked about this in numerous ways in how it pertains to your audience, but never really defined the different types of empathy and explore the impact it can have across the industry.
That’s why I’m really excited about this episode because our guest gives us a full breakdown of what empathy is, how it relates to different cultures and how taking an empathetic approach can vastly level up your studio and even yourself.
