Football Superstars team smitten with satellite team

Speaking to Develop in a special interview feature, Monumental's David Tolley has given a detailled insight into working with the company's indian outsourcing partner.

As well as offering a wealth of advice on best working with an overseas satellite studio, Tolley has praised the culture of his Indian colleagues, highlighting their home country as a breeding ground for development talent.

"We do [...] have a lot of respect for the Indian way of life and see it as a great cultural addition to our studios as a whole with certain things tailored to the Indian way of working," enthused Tolley. "The day-to-day running of the studio is surprisingly smooth considering the distance and time difference, but this clearly comes with choosing the right staff and the ongoing familiarity of processes."

"Anyone who’s been to India knows the unique kind of atmosphere the country has – it’s creative, colorful and passionate; and the growing interest in emergent technology makes game development an obvious draw for lots of young professionals."
