GAME DEV’S QUEST e30: Sore Ear Holes

This week, Rett and Taylor don’t talk about politics. Really. Topics range from the impending eclipse, preparation for their Japan trip, pets, and most importantly, gamedev. They dissect how they might be able to make their game Castle Master Faster Blaster a mobile game using Unity and some of the challenges, benefits, and draw backs.

GAME DEV’S QUEST e28: HOLIDAY HATE

Taylor and Rett share their distaste for the holidays and holiday traditions. Taylor had some unity issues to sort out. Rett was busy and doing some writing. They’ve been listening to more coffee with butterscotch. Then they talk about brainstorming for the upcoming game jam (that already happened for those following along!)

Plus the guys have picked up Pillars of Eternity and been plucking a long!

GAME DEV’s QUEST e27: IT’S THE WEIRD SHIT THAT FEELS THE BEST

This week on GDQ, Rett and Taylor rehash the work they did implementing black jack into their C# text adventure game. They realize that without Humble Bundle, Game Dev’s Quest would never have come into existence. Other topics include purchasing tickets to the Enjoy GameDev conference hosted by Gamkedo, finalizing travel details for Japan, ways to create VR apps, and shortening the 40 hour work week.

Taylor’s Challenge: Watch Midnight Diner, research C# delegates, events, and threading.
Team Challenge: Meet twice this week.
