GAME DEV’S QUEST e36: TRIBAL TRIGGERS

Taylor and Rett dissect their entry for the One Mechanic Game Jam, or OMGJam, and discuss the things they learned about unity. Taylor’s been working on his One Game a Month entry and making some great progress on the Udemy unity course.

Other than game dev, they rip into some DnD, talk about the primal connections to music, horror, and comedy. They talk about drumming. And Rett shares some of his experience playing music in musicals.
