KakeBytes Ep. 29: BrolyLegs
BrolyLegs is a grand master Street Fighter pro player that is known for playing differently than most. He was born with arthrogryposis, a condition that inhibits muscle growth and joint movement, and has adapted to learn how to play games without the use of his hands. BrolyLegs joins me to chat about the last 15 years of competing in fighting game tournaments, including the first two seasons of Street Fighter League, and about how he is connecting with other players through Twitch, YouTube and one-on-one coaching. You can follow BrolyLegs on Twitter @BrolyLegs You can find notes on today's show at kakebytes.com.

KakeBytes Episode 30: Fyre Games and Summerland
I wanted to bring Connor Rush onto KakeBytes to talk about teaching himself how to program in Java as an 11 year old and how he jumpstarted the development of his very own video game studio Fyre Games.
KatyKakes #28 - Vanilla World of Warcraft with John Staats
Blizzard turned the page back in history this summer with the release of Classic World of Warcraft in lieu of a traditional expansion and John Staats, the first 3D level designer at Blizzard, recently published The World of Warcraft Diary.
Cris Tales and Dreams Uncorporated/SYCK
E3 was jam packed this year and I was starstruck the whole week I attended. In my journeys, I had the pleasure of meeting Carlos Rocha, the founder of Dreams Uncoporated and SYCK games.
Ed Annunziata & Ecco the Dolphin
Ed Annunziata joined me on the latest episode of the show to discuss the Sega Genesis classic Ecco the Dolphin as well as discuss Space War Area, which launched earlier this year on the Nintendo Switch.
We delve into his love of programming that kickstarted his career, starting with Pyramid Run in 1984. He has stuck with the same team since Ecco, modernizing the development approach that has stuck with them for the last three decades.
You can follow Ed on Twitter @edannunziata and follow him on YouTube.
Dwarf Fortress: Toady One returns
Tarn Adams joins me on the show (again!) to talk about the full launch of Dwarf Fortress coming soon to Steam and itch.io.
In our first conversation on episode 16 of the show, the full launch of the game seemed literally eons away so I wanted to bring him on to discuss the news, which broke in mid-March, and other development updates. He is joined periodically by his feline companion, Scamps.

How does Katy get these guests?
A very wonderful show telling the side of gaming history that most people don't get to see. Even if you think you know what's going on I'll bet there's some little nugget of information that she'll dig up to blow your mind.
Katy creates such a great atmosphere!
Fantastic guest after guest for each episode. From a gamer who loves both old and new games, this is a show for you!
Awesome podcast! Really fun to learn about how Fata1ity started and how esports really became such a huge phenomenon. KatyKakes is a wonderful host and interviewer! I'll definitely be back for more!
