Loose Nozzles: Making Games with My Kids

Veteran designer Chris Foster (Fire Hose, Harmonix) found inspiration for his new game in an unlikely place. Chris’s 5-year-old son Ian drew a rocket being shot to pieces, and explained in detail the gameplay he had imagined for it. Liking Ian’s idea (and excited to have some unpaid art talent), Chris teamed up with Ian to make their upcoming game, Loose Nozzles. Learn what it takes to make games as a family, and how the experience has changed Chris’s approach to development forever.
