    100010 - Topher & Seabass

    100010 - Topher & Seabass

    Friend of the show, Topher drops by, and Seabass hops over into the guest chair to discuss the games they've worked on together, as well as their recent trip to Pax East. The trip was not only their first time taking a game to a convention, but was also their first time meeting in person. The group discusses what the work on their recent game has been like, the experience of watching people play their game in person, as well as a very questionable offer presented to Topher by a mysterious Uber driver.

    obj_clubhouse 1 - Hollow Knight

    In this jam-packed episode, Sanbox, lazyeye, Grace, Mimpy, and FriendlyCosmonaut play the award winning game Hollow Knight by Australian indie duo Team Cherry (this episode contains many spoilers of the game.)
    Our host's opinions are split, with some praising it and others with a more negative disposition towards it. We also discover exactly how bad lazyeye is at video games, in contrast to "the Gamer Girl Grace".
    Many thanks to Mimpy, who had to redub his entire audio track due to unfortunate data loss.

Great Podcast for Game Devs

I'm always scouring the internet for game dev videos, blogs, and podcasts and I'm so glad this podcast is being produced. If you're a game enthusiast and love building games, especially in GMS, then this is the podcast for you.

I love the interviews and hope they can keep bringing in more guests in the GameMaker community and beyond in coming episodes. The hosts are all very diverse and professional each bring a unique style and background to the show.

The production value is top-notch and you won't regret subscribing to this podcast!
