What is this all about?

“Basically, reddit.com/r/IAmA is a place to interview people, but in a new way. The interviewee begins the process by starting a post, describing who they are and what they do. Then, commenters leave questions and can vote on other questions according to which they would like to see answered. The interviewee then goes through and responds to any questions that he/she would like, and in any way that he/she prefers.”

So this is your chance to ask renowned game developers anything in a Reddit IAmA thread. Register for free at reddit.com, check the schedule on this page and when one of the developers is online click on the link to their post and start asking. We open the threads 10 mins before the actual person starts answering. Each developer will be answering questions for about an hour.
