Over the last decade, online communities and social media have provided gamers with an unprecedented glimpse at the inner workings of the video game industry. While the barrier between publishers and consumers continues to shrink, many gamers still lack an appreciation for the depth of game design. A new company, Callvention, could help gamers to learn much more about that particular process.

Callvention allows gamers to call and converse with developers around the industry. The company plans to expand the number of available developers over time, but they already have a sizable number that have signed on for the program. At this time, there are a handful that may be familiar to Nintendo fans such as Richard Vorodi (Mario vs. Donkey Kong), Bret Barry (Sonic Colors), and Ken Taya (1080: Avalanche). Naturally, fans will have to pay to use the service, and the price varies per developer. Full details can be found at the link below.

While websites like Twitter have allowed gamers to communicate with developers in the past, Callvention is a bit more personal, and could allow users to find a better understanding of the overall development process. If fans show enough interest, the company will likely be able to find more industry talents willing to participate. Either way, it will be interesting to see if fans gravitate towards the service. Stay tuned to Nintendojo for more information as it develops!
