About the Chris Hunt Interview

Hi!
I am working on Kenshi, a squad-based sandbox RPG with RTS element. I started the project solo, somewhere between 6-8 years ago. The first 4ish years I spent working alone whilst working 2 nights a week as a part-time security guard, living the cheap life.

During this time I turned down a job with a AAA developer, and kept batting away the advances of a publisher that wanted to give me half a million dollars.

When I finally released the first early-access version end of 2011 it instantly made me enough of an income to quit my part-time job and work on the game full-time, with the occasional freelancer.

When Steam started Greenlight almost 2 years ago I jumped in and Kenshi got approved in the first batch! Money rolled in and I have been taking my time since then slowly recruiting a super skilled team, we're now up to 6 people.
