Podcast Interview by @infinite_ammo

Monday, September 23rd, 2013

I just got back from a two week trip to Vancouver during which I did a game jam in Victoria (on Vancouver Island), had a few meetings with business contacts, and also hung out with lots of friends. I even went on a four day road trip to The Rockies and back, which was epic.

I also popped down to the Indie House Vancouver to hang out with Alec Holowka, Matt Thorson, Chevy Ray Johnston, Noel Berry and Hannah Boyd. They had a post-PAX jam thing the day after I arrived and then I went back again later on to just hang out and work on Island Burner (my Orca Jam game) some more.

I saw lots of Towerfall and got to play it a bit, but I’m a noob compared to everyone else there. Chevy also showed me his Ludum Dare 27 game called Antidote, which is really good, and we discussed his plans for how to expand it.

Alec is super-busy as usual with a bunch of really cool projects but he found time to do a quick podcast interview with me which you can listen to here. We talk about a bunch of things such as my feelings about Free 2 Play games, making casual games, being an indie dad, my early programming years and much more. Enjoy!
