GAME DEV’S QUEST e24: SPELUNKING FOR POKEMAN

Rett went cave diving in Bend, and Taylor’s apartment almost caught on fire. They talk about being happy with what you have and the allure of what you don’t. The discussion includes success as an indie dev, being lied to growing up, managing finances, and monetizing your skills.

They broach the topic of philosophy and the Philosophize This! podcast along with Taylor feeling down about game dev and getting a nice pick up. Also, Mentor Mondays was actually a thing this week.

Shoutout to JulianToker for a cool twitch stream, awesome gaming community and new podcast Cheerful Ghost, and our buddy Kurt Berning for being our buddy!

GAME DEV’S QUEST e22: THEY’VE GONE TO PLAID

Rett and Taylor discuss motivation and a break through they made this week. They worked on a World War II sidescroller game together and Taylor crushed some bricks making his very own brick breaker game. They talk about his experience streaming and bug hunting, as well as Rett’s love of Shadow of The Colossus and The Last Guardian, and Taylor’s love of Age of Empires.

Shoutout to rockzom, manbeardgames, and AuroraCaelestis for hanging out on stream!

Taylor challenged Rett to do an hour of Gamedev twice this week and Rett challenged Taylor to think of ways to use his pixel art in games.

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.
