GAME DEV’S QUEST e35: OMGAMESTORM

Taylor and Rett kick off the One-Mechanic-Game Jam number 2! What is the #OMGJam you ask? It is a game jam where you do your best to create a game that is played with only one mechanic in only a single weekend! The guys spend their time brainstorming for their own entry.

Taylor discuses challenging himself to attempt One Game a Month or #1GAM and holding himself accountable by streaming regularly. And Rett whines about the woes of having many bosses.
