Soooooooooooooooooooo I'm doing something a little different this week. I tried my hand at recording a relatively short podcast. As I have probably mentioned in previous blog entries, there is a vast spectrum of things I want to do. I would list them all but it would be quicker for me to simply say I just want to create things.
Having finished DIMB (for the most part) I had some time to think about what I wanted to do next. I definitely want to make another game as my "main" project. But considering DIMB took me something like two years to finish, I'd like to have some intermediate medium that I can contribute to on a more regular basis.
Podcasting seemed like a good place to start. I didn't want to kid myself and say I'd be able to write out, film and edit a video every week, because I won't. Podcasting on the other hand doesn't require as much of a commitment. That isn't to say it's easy, or can be done in a trivial way. Podcasting has challenges of its own and still requires a commitment if you're going to do it regularly.
So I want to try and do a podcast once a week. Topics are planned to range between game development, gaming news, the industry, and game reviews/discussion. For this weeks test podcast, I talked a bit about developing DIMB, the game To The Moon and a bit about the Nintendo Switch.
