GAME DEV’S QUEST e05: ROSHAMBO

Taylor and Rett talk about the wedding they went to. Then they jump in and talk about  their week’s hurdles and how you can overcome your own and the importance of breaks.

Then they delve into this weeks code and the fighting mechanics they designed and fleshed out.

Taylor challenges Rett to finish the podcast’s music (which you’ve all been enjoying since day one) and to write some code. And Rett urges Taylor to listen to a great jazz album.

A GAME AT DINNER 02: OPTIONAL ROLE PLAY ELEMENTS

Lee and Rett sit down to discuss the additional optional role play elements they invented to rekindle Morrowind for them. They go through a list of what they’ve nicknamed “traits” and how they would effect the way you you play the game. All rules are self imposed, and you can pick and choose which sound fun to you, or you could roll dice to add a random element to it all.

We will be posting our random roll charts to the website and on reddit as soon as we can. Our characters were completely randomized and made Morrowind very interesting.

If you have any “traits” you think would be cool shoot us an email.
