Last week, we ran our list of the top 10 developers from 2016. But the truth is, it wasn’t an easy list to bring together. Our original list of candidates ran up to some 20 developers, and it was a tremendous effort to find the reasons why each of our 10 developers made the cut.
So how’d we do it? Well a few days later, we took to our Twitch channel to talk about our decisions with our loyal readership. In case you missed it, we’ve taken the time to log our discussion among Gamasutra editors Kris Graft, Alex Wawro, Bryant Francis, and Alissa McAloon, for your perusal.
It proved to be a compelling discussion, in part because we got to dissect more controversial choices like Hello Games and Niantic with our readers in the chat. If you’re curious about what it takes to stand out among a sea of so many great game developers, be sure to watch the full video (seen above).
