Hi, I’m Xavier Rosée. When I’m not drinking rosé to the sound of video games soundtracks, I’m helping indie and mobile game studios build games that find their audiences.

Every week I publish a rundown of articles and insights so you can have topics to discuss around a nice glass of pink wine.

So sip back, relax and enjoy the rosé.
