The Game Developers' Playlist is a special series of The GamesIndustry.biz Podcast in which we talk with developers about the titles that influenced their careers.
This time, we have Megan Fox -- founder of Skatebird developer Glass Bottom Games -- discussing the impact of Ultima 7, the 1992 systems-driven RPG.
Fox reflects on how the use of the game's systems opened up player freedom, and the evolution of similar mechanics in genres such as survival games.
The Game Developer's Playlist is an extension of a series we run on the site called Why I Love, in which developers explore their favourite games.
