Timothy Bendt of Tamatem Games and the Middle East Gaming

This week in Episode 41 I have the remaining parts of the interview with Ivan Filletti of GamingMalta and Timothy Bendt of Tamatem Games. Both are the seconds parts of conversations I had earlier this month. Ivan is telling why gaming studios should land in his country and Timothy is giving us a look inside his publishing company that is focussing on the Middle East.

The episode 39 and episode 40 have both first parts of their interviews. I got realy some interesting feedback on Malta and MENA. One fun example is that Pascal Clarysse became more convinced to bring his studio Big Karma to Malta.
