Ross Symons, Big Ant Studios

Australia is known as a nation of sport lovers. Right now, loving sport is a hard task when there's nothing out there to watch. But, there's always the land of video game sport sims! And it's not just fans embracing those kinds of games, it's the sports codes as well!


This week I'm chatting with Ross Symons, CEO of Big Ant Studios, Australia's most prolific maker of sports video games. Cricket, AFL, tennis, rugby league, and even lacrosse, Big Ant has got them all in its library. What unites designing sports games of so many stripes? How has Big Ant dealt with licensing? We explore these questions and many more.


Ross is a true veteran of the industry and shares so many great thoughts about games development since some of its earliest days and how to carve a path in the industry. So we start by heading all the way back to where it began for Ross to show just how deep his knowledge of the business goes.
