Today I’m having a chat with Kristian Metzger, the Co-Founder and CEO of Stratosphere Games, who are based out of Berlin, Germany. Kristian and his team are building midcore games with a team of 22 people, and they have always bootstrapped the company. There story is an interesting and inspiring one.

Among the topics that we cover in this episode are:

  • What was your leap of faith moment for starting Stratosphere Games?
  • You have been a bootstrapped games company, was that a conscious choice?
  • How raising funding can change things?
  • Can you talk about how you structured the leadership of the company early on and how you changed things going forward?
  • How and when to partner with a publisher?
