should i stay or should i go? studio vs freelance life

Degenesis was originally published in 2004, and has attracted fans around the globe. Now the studio is releasing a new Rebirth Edition and an associated fiction book, Black Atlantic. “My co-author Christian Günther and I originally came up with the idea of creating a post-apocalyptic RPG universe, because we felt there were a lack of games anchored in that genre,” says SixMoreVodka CEO and founder Marko Djurdjevic. “We wanted to create our own take on our favourite genre, but mix…
