009: Waves Waves Waves (featuring Inge Berman)

Read Show Notes
Game artist Inge Berman from S1T2 surfs into our special Global Game Jam episode, using this year's theme of 'waves' to buoy our imaginations! The result is wet and foamy, as we invent a VR game starring a dendrophobic lumberjack (with a sweet double axe attack), a meditation game using Nintendo's Wii Fiit Board and Viiitality sensor, and we reinvent Inge's game Kept as a stationery hoarding game with a gnomish protagonist.

007: Teen Angst Food Fight (featuring Emre Deniz)

Read Show Notes
Game designer Emre Deniz joins us this week, and the result was slightly disturbing. Themes of darkness dominated, with flickering candles and the setting sun giving way to the horrors that lie in the absence of light. Plus, parties! Food fights and drug filled benders, with messes to be made and cleaned up. Everything is fun in VR!

Read Show Notes
Rhys Smith of Pine Fire Studios joins Trevor and Ben this week and they delve into some Click Pitch where things quickly get hot and bothered.
