How to create a culturally diverse and cosy farming game | Amanda Schofield (Studio Drydock)

Made by Studio Drydock, a remote team founded by former EA developers, Wylde Flowers is a cosy life and farming sim with a witchy twist. It launched via Apple Arcade earlier this year and has since become one of the top games on the subscription service ahead of its upcoming PC and Nintendo Switch release.

Amanda Schofield, Studio Drydock co-founder and creative director on Wylde Flowers, joins High Resolution to discuss her time working on The Sims franchise, the challenges of founding a remote studio, and what goes into making diverse characters.
