GAME DEV’S QUEST e32: SHINKANSEN EDITION

Pardon us for the low sound quality, but this episode was recorded LIVE on board Hikari 465 to Himeji. Taylor and Rett spend a lot of time talking about the cultural difference between Japan and the US, all the places they’ve visited, the things they’ve seen. Check our twitter, linked below, to see some of their pictures!

Japan was an absolutely amazing experience, and we are so excited to share it with you. If you can’t enjoy this episode due to the sound quality, then check back in a few days for the follow up episode when Taylor and Rett return home.

GAME DEV’S QUEST e07: BLAST OFF

This was recorded the same week that Game Dev’s Quest launched! (to give a peak behind the curtains.) Taylor and Rett talk about launching the show, and podcasting in general. And they bought tickets to fly to Japan.
Rett binged on Writing Excuses, a podcast dedicated to helping people learn the craft of writing. And Taylors spends some time with Monument Valley.

As far as coding goes they focus on putting the finishing touches on the intro into their console RPG, and add some color to the recently added ASCII art.

Rett challenges Taylor to stay away from the news.
