Nick and Jon are back with another episode of the XboxEra Podcast with our special guest this week being the return of Tomas Sala, developer of The Falconeer, which takes flight soon on Nintendo Switch and Playstation 4/5.
We talk about game design, Flight Simulator, Artful Escape and all sorts of indie games and what might be coming down the pipe from developers in the future.
We also talk about the Halo Infinite flight a fair bit before we dive into our community questions from our wonderful patrons!
