Shop Drifter – Interview with Will Mesilane
Following on from Player 2’s PAX AUS 2019 Podcast, wherein I discussed some of my favourite titles from the show floor, I wanted to spend some more time discussing Shop Drifter, the supermarket trolley themed endless runner from developer Will Mesilane. As a huge fan of the genre, I was intrigued by what Will had put together and was keen to find out when I could expect a full version. I quickly organised a Skype interview with him and what resulted is a 26-minute audio interview in which we discuss his working history, development processes and what he has in store for the planned mid-2020 launch of Shop Drifter.

It was whilst toiling away in the bowels of the now mythical Australian Gamer forums that Stephen’s attempts at writing were recognised by then up-and-coming Matt ‘Hewso’ Hewson as “not terrible”. Since then he has contributed to such sites as The Age’s now defunct Screen Play, the now-long retired Black Panel and currently serves under Editor-in-Chief Hewso for Player2.net.au, at least until the pattern of decline obvious in his previous engagements is picked up on by Hewso and he is exiled from games journalism forever.
