You’d have to be a very special kind of person to work on Baby Shark: Sing & Swim Party. Developers Recotechnology invited us to pick over their collective minds. Have they gone to mush? Are they just going to repeat the theme tune back at us for an hour?

Losing our head with Nacho Rodriguez, the creator of The Many Pieces of Mr. Coo

We had to hold in all that gushing praise, for a moment, when we were offered the chance to interview Dan Vader, director of Grindstone at Capybara Games. Nobody likes a suck-up.
