Video games are an art form.

And on PixelSmiths, we talk to the independent artists whose creative minds power some of the most innovative titles on the market today.

Developers, designers, visionaries and storytellers. It's their blood, sweat and tears that go into crafting unique experiences for players around the globe.

And finally, they have a platform to celebrate their creativity, their drive and their vision.

Hosted by esports caster Clinton "Paperthin" Bader and podcast producer Larry Kilgore III, PixelSmiths will explore the tales that unfolded from concept to release with game creators worldwide. We'll explore the obstacles they had to overcome during production, how the games changed their careers, and what new projects they're working on now.
