Hello and welcome to the Scottish Games Network Podcast – it’s a Bonus Interview Podcast with Eltanin Casciani of Team Junkfish!
Eltanin Casciani is the Communications & Community Lead at Dundee’s Team Junkfish, developers of multiplayer deep sea horror game Monstrum 2. With Monstrum 2 having recently implemented its next milestone update, we thought now would be a good time to catch up with the team and find out about what it’s like working on an early access game and developing a game publicly alongside your community.
What better person to as than the Communications & Community Lead then? Casciani was a fantastic guest, taking us behind the scenes on the ongoing development of Monstrum 2, explaining, for example, how she hand picked a team of 8 community members to become their trusted advisors on the project. She also told us about the importance of Discord in building a community and outlined what it is exactly a “community manager” does – hint: social media is just a fraction of the role.
