📣 Hi friends! We recently had Buddy Sola, Akupara's Community Manager and Expert Marketing Interviewer, in the Work With Indies Discord for a great talk about the Akupara Games culture, his own development while at the studio, and some tips for those applying for their open roles. We'll be preparing a full recap, but in the meantime, you can listen to the audio-only VOD on Twitch. (Apologies as we had mic issues until about the 8:00 mark. 😅)
