    Red Panda Derailed

    A second virus in less than a month ravages the Mitchell household as GDC goers discover a privacy policy so bad they thought there had been a data leak. We discuss the status of the Red Panda project, Todd's favorite getting-things-done methods, and what to do when you have an actual gamedev breakdown.

    Red Panda Mechanics

    Red Panda Mechanics

    This one is all about the progress we've made in taking our red panda archaeology game concept and bringing it to life. It's a look at the implications of the game's concept, the philosophy of the art and character design, our intention to develop a simple map system with Godot's tilemap tools (prior to the recent release of version 4.0), implementation of basic RPG controls and collisions, and the UI work so critical to a story-driven game.

    A foreign government reached out, and what they said may pertain to you. Seriously. 

    Also, an update on production for the game co-design episodes!

Hazard 0643 ,

The reason I started a podcast.

So I am going to be real honest here and tell you guys that I have little to no understanding of game development or what it takes to make something from nothing using code.

That being said this podcast is an absolute blast to listen to, the content is always relevant and interesting and I find myself just sucked into each episode no matter what it’s about.

I’ve always wanted to start a podcast and it’s because of podcasts like this, Todd is super personal and relatable and always delivers the content in a well thought out and relatable fashion even to someone like me who doesn’t understand his industry.

Really just a great show. Keep it up guys!

Are Pee Gee Fan ,

Yay it’s back!

Great podcast that has everything game dev. A must listen for any indie devs with some free ear time.
