As part of the 2019 event, Mariko MacDonald and Michael Iantorno hosted interviews with various game developers, makers, and playtesters.

Squinky is a writer, programmer, musician, and visual artist who creates games and playable experiences about gender identity, social awkwardness, and miscellaneous silliness. We had the opportunity playtest Squinky’s game, Robot Slow Dance, a two-player animatronic diorama game contained entirely within a briefcase.
