During last week’s Hangout we answered community questions and the panel shared consulting tips for finding projects, working with clients, keeping records, and a lot more.

Daniel discussed the studio’s new hit iOS game, shared insights into how they approach game design, and even showed us one of their sprite sheets in all it’s animated glory. Hear how this two person team is building on the success of their first game.
Last week on Corona Geek Hangout 136, we started a new memory matching game development series.

Download the code each week and follow along. Here are clips from the Hangout.
