    [Ep286] Feral Obi-Wan

    [Ep286] Feral Obi-Wan

    Hello, Shenanites! This week, we talk about rad cats, content glut, and the indiepocalypse. It’s all about weathering the storm long enough to weatherproof your boat. Although at some point, your boat is so weatherproofed that you’ve reached the threshold of diminishing returns. As with everything, survival is key.

    Questions answered (abbreviated):
    - Flyhoppie Axerompa: A few people have said there is an unknown but real end date to indiepocalypse. What are your thoughts?

    [Ep285] Druid Bias

    [Ep285] Druid Bias

    Heya, Shenanites! In this episode, we discuss information diets, radioactive piles of poop, and asynchronous mentorship. All data is spun, but whether you get gold or pasta at the end is unpredictable. Plus, context changes all the time, so maybe someday you’ll WANT spaghetti consequences. Turns out, everything is hard, and it’s just a bunch of triangles anyway, each following a different path.

    Questions answered (abbreviated):
    - Woland77: Does the explosive post-end-of-support popularity of Among Us have any meaningful lessons for developers about maintaining their old games, or is it just a statistical outlier with no real lessons for anyone?
    - Flyhoppie Axerompa: Are there any tools you use or really anything you do that you believe listeners shouldn't try to emulate?

    [Ep284] The Bread-Cake Gradient

    [Ep284] The Bread-Cake Gradient

    Hi, Shenanites! This week, we talk about gummi bear jackets, trash tier debt, and triangular muffins. In reality TV, entertainment trumps function every single time, so it is imperative that we save other baked goods from going the way of the cupcake. Do you really want to live in a world where twelve pounds of frosting are piled on every bread-thing you eat? Which side of the donut wars will you be on?

    Questions answered (abbreviated):
    - Levelheaded: How does the revenue system work for different platform partnerships?
    - Beekie Boppaboop: What would be the best thing to find in the middle of the cupcake? The worst?
    - Flyhoppie Axerompa: What office chairs do you guys use?

    [Ep283] Monkey Law

    [Ep283] Monkey Law

    Hello, Shenanites! In this episode, we discuss happy lights, the weird disconnect, and accurate genre classifications. Do you ever think about how weird it is that we’re just a bunch of monkeys that chose to put on clothes and live in a world with rules that are artificially constructed by other monkeys based on the nonsense they believe? Sometimes when we’re in the grind, our minds wander. See these termites? These are money now.

    Questions answered (abbreviated):
    - Dee Snopek: How long did each of your games take to develop, and why did you choose to explore each genre?
    - ICBusch: How did you maintain the focus to program effectively while Sam was so sick?

    [Ep282] Skeleton Gateways

    [Ep282] Skeleton Gateways

    Hey there, Shenanites! This week, we talk about the three stages of animation, the spectrum of engagement, and a weird trifecta of totally oppositional forces. We also talk about cake. Like a lot. Whether you can have it or eat it or both. There are a lot of great outcomes when cake is involved. And skeletons! The easiest way to give permission to grown-ups to have fun is to add a skeleton. And that, friends, is what Halloween is all about.

    Questions answered (abbreviated):
    - TimConceivable: Do you all get into Halloween?

    [Ep281] Money Value

    [Ep281] Money Value

    Salutations, Shenanites! In this episode, we discuss real time learning curves, a big dumb week, and the only valuable patents. When you talk about exclusives, you never really talk about who is excluded. For example, Sam is the exclusive recipient of THE LOTS this year, and that means no M&Ms for anyone else. TL;DR Capitalism is bad.

    Questions answered (abbreviated):
    - challosis: How does your remote project management and co-working system work, now that you've been honing it for a while?
