Inside the Indie Mind: Zach Barth (Zachtronics)


In this onstage Q&A, the first of a yearly series with intriguing indies, Gamasutra EIC Kris Graft talks to veteran indie Zach Barth, founder of Zachtronics. In his 10+ year history making games, Zach has created 'Infiniminer' (a key freeware inspiration for Mojang's 'Minecraft'), the acclaimed' Infinifactory', and a series of fan-favorite code-creation games including 'TIS-100' and 'SHENZHEN I/O', as well as current puzzle game standout 'Opus Magnum'. The subjects discussed will include inspiration, puzzle design, and overall dev philosophy.
