Interview: Teddy Lee

Teddy Lee and his brother Kenny of Cellar Door Games didn't have much growing up in Toronto. Teddy was never that great at programming, and Kenny ended up switching majors. It wouldn’t be until life put them in situations they didn’t want to be in that they pulled themselves up by the bootstraps and created one of the more successful and well received indie games in the recent years — Rogue Legacy. Teddy Lee is Rogue Legacy’s co-creator, and game designer. He and I talk about the process of getting to ship a product, controlling project costs, and having to make tough decisions that make or break independent artists in the video game industry.
