So I sat down with McGeever to talk MMOs, tech, and a ship full of heroes during GDC 2018. Talking to the captain A look through McGeever’s professional history is, frankly, intimidating. It’s not that he’s a gaming legend or anything, but … [Read more...] about GDC 2018: In the crow’s nest with Ship of Heroes’ CEO Casey McGeever
