Hello Games’ founder, Sean Murray, will answer all your questions the whole day. So if you feel the need, the need to ask questions, feel free to ask if Hello Games’ was influenced by dare-devil Evel Knievel, if they have imitated any of the stunts found in their games in real life, or if they walk on the wild side. Tune in for more details on how to win a free copy of Joe Danger 2: The Movie during the Q&A.
