Interview: Dylan Cuthbert on BitSummit's evolution

Dylan Cuthbert is probably best known for his work on Starfox. However, he's also the president of Q-Games, which is where James Mielke was working at when he came up with the idea for BitSummit.

Regarding BitSummit itself, what in your opinion were the biggest/most important changes from year one to year two and from year two to year three"

From year 1 to 2, the main change was size. We didn't realise how packed it would get. For year 3, the main change was the inclusion of the Indie Megabooth and the formation of JIGA. The combination of both really helped boost everything beyond our expectations.

This is the first year that BitSummit curated which games...
