Amazing Insight into Game Development
This podcast is an amazing insight into the processes of game development. The hosts are respected indie developers who bring such a wealth of knowledge and experience to your ears. I look forward to learning from them each week, and this podcast allows me to gain a greater understanding of the whole development process. If you're at all interested in game development, then this podcast should be high on your list of subscriptions. I am a sound designer and love to learn in as many areas of game dev that I can, and this weekly podcast is effectively like attending a lecture at a university, taught by three experienced working professionals.
Cannot recommend enough.
Thanks for taking the time to record and release this each week. I'm learning heaps.
Worth your time
Some great insights from some interesting guys. No BS, but no sugar-coating either. Some great stuff about how the industry works (or doesn't work) from some interesting perspectives. A 'must listen' (if that's a thing).
Awesome Indie Game Dev
Great Podcast with three experienced successful Indie Game Devs. Giving an enlightening insight in how many struggle to survive while a small few thrive in the great indiepocalypse. Essential listening for anyone interested in how Indie Games are made.
