GAME DEV’S QUEST e25: DO IT LIKE DIOGENES

Rett and Taylor discuss Diogenes, the famous cynic philosopher, and Zeno who strongly influenced Stoic philosophy. They plug their upcoming (yet already released) podcast with twitch streamer rockzom, which you should go listen to right now. They dissect some points given in Coffee with Butterscotch episode Scream Tubes and Bacon Babies, trying to find the motivation to always be learning gamedev. Then they contemplate game design through some flaws in Divinity: Original Sin. Finally, they discuss the film Okja which will turn you all into Vegans!

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!
