The PocketGamer.biz podcast is BACK with Google on games

The PocketGamer.biz podcast is back for a whole new season, with more of the movers, the shakers, the makers and the people behind the headlines.

We’ll be speaking to game designers and developers, business owners and leaders, and those responsible for making mobile games the fastest growing area of gaming in the world today.

We’ll be diving deep and looking behind the headlines to find out more about the ways in which the wide world of mobile games is evolving.


In episode one of the all-new podcast, we go big! We welcome Greg Hartrell, the product director of Android and Google Play, which is responsible for meeting the demands of three billion gamers around the world.


Greg chats to PocketGamer.biz about the company’s latest research into the drives and desires of gamers worldwide. What are they playing? What moves them? And more to the point, what makes them switch off?

Greg also discusses the importance of launching a game and the growing opportunities being offered by cross-platform play.
