[Ep287] False Gates
Hi, Shenanites! We’re taking a break from our break in order to discuss holiday creep creep (we said what we said), ground warts, and console tribalism. By the time you hear this episode, we’ll be at least half way through the second of two superspreader capitalism event weeks! Stay safe, mask up, and remember, you can always work remotely from Barbados. Questions answered (abbreviated): - TimConceivable: SAM! You mentioned switching over to Clip Studio Paint from Inkscape, but haven't said why! What made you decide to switch software?

[Ep286] Feral Obi-Wan
Hello, Shenanites! This week, we talk about rad cats, content glut, and the indiepocalypse. It’s all about weathering the storm long enough to weatherproof your boat. Although at some point, your boat is so weatherproofed that you’ve reached the threshold of diminishing returns. As with everything, survival is key. Questions answered (abbreviated): - Flyhoppie Axerompa: A few people have said there is an unknown but real end date to indiepocalypse. What are your thoughts?

[Ep285] Druid Bias
Heya, Shenanites! In this episode, we discuss information diets, radioactive piles of poop, and asynchronous mentorship. All data is spun, but whether you get gold or pasta at the end is unpredictable. Plus, context changes all the time, so maybe someday you’ll WANT spaghetti consequences. Turns out, everything is hard, and it’s just a bunch of triangles anyway, each following a different path. Questions answered (abbreviated): - Woland77: Does the explosive post-end-of-support popularity of Among Us have any meaningful lessons for developers about maintaining their old games, or is it just a statistical outlier with no real lessons for anyone? - Flyhoppie Axerompa: Are there any tools you use or really anything you do that you believe listeners shouldn't try to emulate?

[Ep284] The Bread-Cake Gradient
Hi, Shenanites! This week, we talk about gummi bear jackets, trash tier debt, and triangular muffins. In reality TV, entertainment trumps function every single time, so it is imperative that we save other baked goods from going the way of the cupcake. Do you really want to live in a world where twelve pounds of frosting are piled on every bread-thing you eat? Which side of the donut wars will you be on? Questions answered (abbreviated): - Levelheaded: How does the revenue system work for different platform partnerships? - Beekie Boppaboop: What would be the best thing to find in the middle of the cupcake? The worst? - Flyhoppie Axerompa: What office chairs do you guys use?

[Ep283] Monkey Law
Hello, Shenanites! In this episode, we discuss happy lights, the weird disconnect, and accurate genre classifications. Do you ever think about how weird it is that we’re just a bunch of monkeys that chose to put on clothes and live in a world with rules that are artificially constructed by other monkeys based on the nonsense they believe? Sometimes when we’re in the grind, our minds wander. See these termites? These are money now. Questions answered (abbreviated): - Dee Snopek: How long did each of your games take to develop, and why did you choose to explore each genre? - ICBusch: How did you maintain the focus to program effectively while Sam was so sick?

[Ep282] Skeleton Gateways
Hey there, Shenanites! This week, we talk about the three stages of animation, the spectrum of engagement, and a weird trifecta of totally oppositional forces. We also talk about cake. Like a lot. Whether you can have it or eat it or both. There are a lot of great outcomes when cake is involved. And skeletons! The easiest way to give permission to grown-ups to have fun is to add a skeleton. And that, friends, is what Halloween is all about. Questions answered (abbreviated): - TimConceivable: Do you all get into Halloween?

[Ep281] Money Value
Salutations, Shenanites! In this episode, we discuss real time learning curves, a big dumb week, and the only valuable patents. When you talk about exclusives, you never really talk about who is excluded. For example, Sam is the exclusive recipient of THE LOTS this year, and that means no M&Ms for anyone else. TL;DR Capitalism is bad. Questions answered (abbreviated): - challosis: How does your remote project management and co-working system work, now that you've been honing it for a while?

[Ep280] Big Brain Quarter
Hello, Shenanites! This week, we talk about predeciding, the naming problem, and ending conversations. Our quarterly review revealed that we haven’t done enough thinking about thinking about things because doing things is often a lot easier. Until suddenly it isn’t. Every time a thing is hard, ask yourself, “Does it have to be?” Frankly, we could all use a burrito. Questions answered (abbreviated): - challosis: What are the Game Maker project files called for all of your past games? - Grintrim Gappaquip: I have a few questions about GR18's design: Is the display on his face crt, hologram, lcd or led? Were all models or GR18 powered by burritos? If I was to attempt to open up my GR18 and tinker around would it void my warranty? - Beekie Boppaboop: Sam! Do you ever run into spaghetti art in the same way your other bros run into spaghetti code? - Flyhoppie Axerompa: How do you end conversations?

[Ep279] Cupcakes and Mugs
Hi, Shenanites! In this episode, we discuss the good kind of spooky, tooling states, and our deficiencies. But how are you supposed to know how the things you’re taught in high school apply to a thing you don’t know you want to do as a job? Try saying that three times fast. Also, try saying the word “weaning.” It’s a dumb word the more you say it. Weaning. Weeeeaaannning. You’ll see. PSA: Depending on where you live, food tampering is a felony. So, ya know, don’t. PS. Adam’s IG handle: adamncoster (https://bit.ly/2F3SjaB) Questions answered (abbreviated): - Zonko Baggoota: Way to get a mention on Game Maker's Toolkit! Did you know he was going talk about Crashlands and the studio ahead of time? - FGKeiji: On episode 264, you discussed how having an unlimited runway would allow you to train for two years without worry. Can you go more into detail about what that training process would look like in practice for each of you, and what kinds of skills would be prioritized? - giantmuskrat: Please tell us about your favorite cup.

[Ep278] Twumbly Beef
Greetings, Shenanites! This week, we talk about sandwich butts, the right pants website, and our time traveling future selves. If you’re ten percent chocolate, are you a touch dead? Is it worse to accept a little more stress or a little more poison? Remember, comfort zones aren’t risk free. So be wary of false dichotomies when you’re workshopping your new YouTube channel. Questions answered (abbreviated): - AStreetsign: Why is Roid Rage so dang difficult? - challosis: A time machine explodes into Seth's backyard. The hatch opens and the three of you step out and say: Crashlands 2 will take you 5 years. What do you do?? - Butterscotch Atheist: What are your favorite meals to cook? What was the most ambitious culinary project you’ve put your mind to? - IrishLuck: Is it better to work outside of your comfort zone with a high risk of failure but higher chance of learning, or work inside your comfort zone with a lower chance of failure but less learning?

[Ep277] The New Vaping
Hello, Shenanites! In this episode, we discuss the sleep stuporous state, quarantine wardrobes, and bot wars. Do you ever think about how bugs are just cute litter butter packets wrapped in a shell? And how many goldfish crackers are calorically equivalent to a butterfly? How big or how small things are is wild. It’s a small pleasure to be able to insulate the people you love from some of the nonsense, but it’s also a pleasure to share some of it. So grab a buddy, grab your coffee, and let’s get nonsensical! Questions answered (abbreviated): - BscotchKarl: What is the origin of the G-Nomes, and will they ever have any use other than aesthetics? - Beekie Boppaboop: What order of magnitude is the number of individual butterflies in the world? - Flyhoppie Axerompa: How often do you guys shave your heads? Are there any surprises I need to be aware of, or is being bald pretty straight forward?

[Ep276] The Beautiful Cube
Hiya, Shenanites! This week, we talk about tiny poisonous sticks, determinism, and how stuff can be two things. Measurements are trickier than they appear. I mean, we can’t even measure things well enough to know the state of something IN THIS VERY MOMENT. You probably don’t even know what’s behind you RIGHT NOW. Don’t look! It’s for the best. Sam’s IG handle: @bscotch_sam (https://bit.ly/32rFjEH) Questions answered (abbreviated): - TheViralMelon: Do you believe in a deterministic world? - Beekie Boppaboop: Do you think we’ll ever get more Stream Game streams? Or Art Vids? Or Web Dev somethings? Why or why not?

[Ep275] Memory Density
Hey there, Shenanites! In this episode, we discuss bounty hunting, comfort games, and chaos engines. Sometimes you need to live life precariously in order to feel truly alive. So, don’t shy away from danger! Balance that scone box on your drink! Balance your peanut butter-y fork on that jar of peanut butter! Balance your meat suit on that wobbly deck railing! Hm… there seems to be some kind of theme here. Questions answered (abbreviated): - IrishLuck: What game do you go back to over and over again? - Cpt. Jazz: What is the important (or interesting) thing you have learned about yourselves, your team, and your studio during this season of working from home? - Mopait Flatunk: GameMaker released a new version with Structs and Functions! How quickly, if at all, do you adopt the new functionality? Do changes to your core technologies like this excite you or cause you anxiety and dread? - Retro Banana Man NL: I see Gamemaker Studio 2 has a new patch! What is your experience with it?

[Ep274] Unhinged Arcade
Hello, Shenanites! This week, we talk about high complexity gimmicks, bad reviews, and how to measure a table. As adults, we need to be better about scheduling time in our days for being responsibly irresponsible. Everything is part of the process, even if you aren’t sure how yet. That’s why you need to stay mentally hungry, even if your belly is full of pizza. Questions answered (abbreviated): - allenmb: I misspelled Crashlands 2 in Google as Crashlambs, and now I'm wondering, did I misspell it?? - challosis: Are there any user reviews of Crashlands or Levelhead that are seared into your memory for being painful/ridiculous/insane? - Alagreat Colcrunch: Could you give any advice for wannabe game devs just starting college?

[Ep273] Toothbrush Hijacking
Hi again, Shenanites! In this episode, we discuss brain soup, perfect sticks, and house magicians. Things that are simple aren’t always easy. Sometimes you need the right tools for the job, and sometimes it’s better to leave it to the professionals. Unless you do such a bad job that no professional will come near it. One day, deck… One day. Questions answered (abbreviated): - challosis: Whats the worst home improvement project you ever tried to do?

[Ep272] Horizontal Tornado
Heya, Shenanites! This week, we talk about fancy footwork, epic power imbalances, and socially distant greetings. When it’s too dangerous to hug people, how do you lock-in your greeting and introduce chaos, the universal social lubricant? If you try one of our ideas, let us know how it goes! Plus, as a bonus, we reveal what the www in your url really stands for. Sidenote: Adam had some audio difficulties this time. Oops!

[Ep271] Fizzy Pickles
Hello, Shenanites! In this episode, we discuss dev nostalgia, spinning hats, and planning chaos. You might go about your day with absurdist gleeful abandon, but the world is all chaos and moths. Sometimes 18 characters are all that stands between you and success. Questions answered (abbreviated): - TimConceivable: Could you share with us some of the inspiration behind the designs of the various enemies and things in LevelHead? - DigitalWizrd: Seth in your 2018 GDC talk you say plans are bad and you shouldn't do them. I find planning keeps happening without me thinking about it. How do you keep chaos plentiful to combat the planning? What do you do to sprinkle chaos in your day? - cprice: What’s the process for contracting voice actors for your games?

[Ep270] Hypercondensed Slapstick
Hi, Shenanites! This week, we talk about elaborate trap construction, tech curmudgeons, and the business equivalent of peanut butter shorts. The problems you needed to solve yesterday aren’t always the same as the problems you need to solve today. You’re definitely going to do it wrong, but there are ways to do it less wrong. Step one, get an endless supply of tiny spoons. Questions answered (abbreviated): - Beekie Boppaboop: Would any of you do voice work for another studio’s game? - Fraser_: If you were to give advice to some brothers who have just released their first hit and want to start a studio, what would you tell them?

[Ep269] Laser Sausage
Hey there, Shenanites! In this episode, we discuss kitten onesies, the transubstantiation of noises, and how there’s nothing to watch. You can get away with being dumb if you’re clever enough. And just because something is free doesn’t mean there aren’t hidden costs. Which is to say, WE DON’T WANT YOUR BALLOON.

[Ep268] Sconegate
Hello, Shenanites! This week, we talk about muscley butterflies, small batch cat introductions, and a fractal universe. The most important part of a biased random walk is the bias. As long as you know vaguely where you’re going, a wildly circuitous route can still get you there. Just don’t look too deep -- those triangle muffins will look right back. Questions answered (abbreviated): - tofos: How is LevelHead doing compared to Crashlands? - Captain Wiggly: What strategies have you found to be the least effective for promoting your games? - Bukkarow Vimtangle: Can you talk more about the head-space for taking game development seriously?

[Ep267] Spectrum of Commitment
Hi, Shenanites! This week, we discuss evolving PCs, load obfuscation, and daily acceleration. Why do we have so many hard drives? Are woodchucking and swoopadooping results mostly based on willpower? If we can’t make a good fake strawberry taste, how can electricity? Better read the whole paper to find out. Questions answered (abbreviated): - Beekie Boppaboop: How much Swoop would a Swoopadoop Doop if a Swoopadoop could Swoop Doop? 7? - drhayes: How does Rumpus generate such great names? - Butterscotch Atheist: How does your iterative design philosophy hold up when making a sequel to a well-defined game?

[Ep266] Techdebt Burndown Rodeo Circus
Hey there, Shenanites! In this episode, we talk about the three body problem of cats, aggressive obfuscation, and the problem with a byte. We’ve got so much life advice packed into this one episode, you don’t even know! Literally. Because there are five minutes that are lost to time, and those were the most important five minutes of all. Oh well.

[Ep265] Cookie Bandolier
Hello, Shenanites! This week, we discuss real human experiences, the tyranny of social contracts, and, yet again, how economists are wrong. That’s just a well that never runs dry. It is possible to be both cynical about humanity and also awed by human ingenuity and creativity. What can we say? It’s complicated. But hey, at least there aren’t any murderhornets. ...right? Questions answered (abbreviated): - challosis: How do you avoid becoming cynical? Or have you accepted being cynical? - thefreakyZ: When you eat a chocolate sandwich cookie, what is your process of eating it?

[Ep264] Technical Caveman
Hiya, Shenanites! In this episode, we talk about postmortems, focused jamming, and the entubening. Diversifying your experience at the start lets you go faster later on. A body in motion stays in motion. A body stuck in one position for twelve hours a day probably atrophies. Or something. Physics, ya know? Questions answered (abbreviated): - challosis: What game would you make if you had a $100 million budget? - Puffslappa Hoplongie: What kind of process you use for animation? Do you have any tips for breaking into animation? - Beekie Boppaboop: So, it looks like there won’t be a Shenanijam nor a Shenanicon this year. So what will fill the void of events starting with “shenani”?

[Ep263] Personal Snack Tax
Hi there, Shenanites! This week, we discuss one star reviews, risky business, and the cost of maintenance. Activity isn’t the same thing as progress.

Questions answered (abbreviated): - challosis: What are some pie-in-the-sky feature ideas from early on in Levelhead development that never made it in? - Gearwip Toppybeep: Would you ever, under any circumstance, accept a buy-out or merger with a larger game studio?

[Ep262] Black Lives Matter

[Ep261] Positive Swearing
Hey there, Shenanites! In this episode, we talk about inflection points, poking the fan, and warning ambivalence. The most valuable thing you can do is discover that you don’t need to do something. And the worst way to teach something is to not teach it at all. Those are just two of the wiznugs from this week’s flavor packed ep! So grab your coffee and get to listening!

[Ep260] Aphid Warfare
Howdy, Shenanites! This week, we discuss murder ecosystems, barometers for demand, and the worst thing about pizza. Can your every day carry change what “home” means? How are you supposed to hold a reverse knife? Since you can’t guarantee 100% satisfaction, just remember that the perpetual feeling of underdelivering is the result of receiving the highest praise from another human person. Okay, that last bit might not have been as amusing, but listen to all the other bon mots we make with our bouches! Questions answered (abbreviated): - Butterscotch Atheist: How does your build pipeline work? How does it handle multiple consoles where the game itself is fundamentally different? - Beekie Boppaboop: How many typos do you aech make per day? - Kipnail Zonkloud: What kind of mouse and keyboard do you all use?

Any ideas when I will have this opportunity? - Ps7cho: An article mentioned you focus on "cross platform irreverent games." Is this something you coined or a title placed upon you? - QuantumAnomaly: When building a new enemy, which comes first: the name or the mishmash of squiggly lines that becomes the robot drone creature thing? - Butterscotch Atheist: Seth, a while ago you mentioned that to save time and energy in law school, you made and ate one meal for a whole year. What was it? - Fraser_: How did you transition from just dumping your games on platforms (like the rest of us plebs) to engaging with platform featuring and other special stuff? - bamhm182: Can you guys find toilet paper?

[Ep258] Random Social Exclamation
Heya, Shenanites! This week, we discuss depressurization, con generators, and a cheesy arms race. You know, life is just an endless series of trying to find things to do.

Questions answered (abbreviated): - Jablong Funkogourdie: Levelhead is a beautiful game and I'm so happy for you guys to have launched it! - Beekie Boppaboop: What is a concept you understand very well or a skill that you have mastered that isn't useful? - one dead saint: I tapped your address into Google maps and got a UPS store. which can only mean that you guys are working out of a small PO Box as your office! My question is why have you guys never talked about how tiny you are?! Are you always tiny? Or do you have a shrink ray that you use everyday? - challosis: What is the hardest part about designing a UI that works on touch screens and also on consoles?

Or is Levelhead just that SMOKE'N?!?!?!? - Fraser_: How did you decide on Thursday, April 30th to launch Levelhead? - Flyhoppie Axerompa: Sam, a long time ago you spoke about how at the end of Crashlands development you had to pull back on your art skills a bit to make sure the game looks consistent.

[Ep255] Pillow Pants
Hey, Shenanites! In this episode, we talk about big napkin goose bags, a desire for chaos, and buying chores. Trading up from a paper clip to a house is all about figuring out the business logic.

Hello, Shenanites! This week, we discuss bidet turrets, change management, and 40 tabs plus a spreadsheet.

[Ep253] TP Bamboozlement
Hi, Shenanites! In this episode, we talk about sports humans, the bidet contingent, and getting on the Ferris wheel. The Levelhead launch is now less than four weeks away, and the gold build is done! Who knew that three bug fixes and changing a zero to a one would be so emotional. When you break through a milestone, there’s often a goal vacuum left behind. We should probably fill it with more than peanut butter whisky and mouthwash... Questions answered (abbreviated): - Flyhoppie Axerompa: If you gave your wives full creative control over your next game project, but were still in charge of the technical execution of creating that game, what would that project look like? - Butterscotch Atheist: Thoughts on looking at other game’s game reviews and learning from their mistakes? - TimConceivable: ADAM! With the TP shortage of 2020, are you going to finally hook up that bidet? - cprice: What are your views on post-launch business models in indie games? - Vuvu987: Seth, you went on a quest for gains a few episodes ago. Do you have any tips for a quest for loss? - Underscrum Rompyyerblee: You are each stuck on different islands for the rest of your lives and you can only have one book, one alcoholic beverage, and play one video game.

[Ep251] Orchestra of Effort
Hello, Shenanites! In this episode, we talk about living on a spaceship, hotel WODs, and void houses. Working from home means that all times are peak times. A pandemic is sweeping the world, and we’re all in this together -- do what you can to help! It’s about attitude. And excellent distance socializing. (Speaking of, our audio is different in this episode because we have to be together apart. It’ll probably continue to be different in future eps. Just a heads up!) Semantics note: We used the term “quarantine” to talk about the stay-at-home sitch going on, but that’s not quite right. For your ref, quarantine means that a person has been exposed, isolation means that the person is sick, and social distancing is what the rest of us should do in order to help (6 feet! Hand sanitizer! Stay home!). Whew! Words, ya know? Questions answered (abbreviated): - Beekie Boppaboop: The next prime podcast is 251, just so you know. It is also an Einstein Prime and a Sophie Germain Prime and a Chen Prime. - Underscrum Rompyyerblee: If you had a World of Warcraft-like mount in real life, which would each of you choose? - Woland77: I have noticed that a lot of the games going up for free on the Epic Store are the base version of games with DLC or different versions. Is this the new "demo?" What do you think about this development in the economy of games?

[Ep250] Tumbleweed Cough
Hiya, Shenanites! This week, we discuss idiot testing, the accidental nature of procrastination, and what brains are bad at.

To so many platforms, your head might explode. But don’t let it -- you’ll need that noggin for building, sharing, and playing all those sweet, sweet levels. Questions answered (abbreviated): - Beekie Boppaboop: How can you tell the difference between taking a break and procrastination? - smellyplatypus: Do you guys have any tips for someone looking to optimize their early life in order to make a good transition into work and business? - peabnuts123: Do you still have a so-called “10% rule”?

[Ep249] The Curse of Knowledge
Greetings, Shenanites! In this episode, we talk about blame nets, the strongest cereal, and Norman doors. Once you have your ducks in a column and your crabs in a row, you can turtle up and just start poking people. At base, learning, teaching, and, really, all forms of communication are about figuring out assumptions. Once you do that, the world is your truffle! Questions answered (abbreviated): - GamemakerOG: What was your guys' introduction to Gamemaker? What is one of your fondest early Gamemaker memories? - challosis: Do y'all educate yourselves on game design outside of building games? - Beekie Boppaboop: When playing video games for fun, do you often accidentally start to look at the gameplay from a designer's perspective?

[Ep248] Fingercones
Hey hey, Shenanites! This week, we discuss reality show pitches, cheap hobbies, and minimalist hyper casual garbage. Do you know who else believed in rapid prototyping and small batch delivery? Hint: airplanes were involved. Which is to say, history is more than just a recounting of wars. Sometimes it’s running a marathon in a suit. Sidenote: We recorded this episode before GDC was postponed, so the discussion about that is outdated. Questions answered (abbreviated): - Mimmabip Gourkee: You have three months to release a mobile game. Sam is the game programmer, Adam the artist, and Seth the web programmer.

Do you have any examples of making physical tools to solve physical problems? - divo: How are your patch notes so beautiful and thorough? - Fraser_: How do you decide when to optimize crappy systems instead of just knuckling down and working through them? - beardedfists: How do you handle the pressure of meeting business goals and objectives while also enjoying the work that you do?

[Ep241] Human Spectra
How’s it going, Shenanites? In this episode, we talk about Sisyphian tasks, relationship FOMO, and reasonable metrics.

Note: Sam says ADD, but that term isn’t used any longer. The current terminology is ADHD. Questions answered (abbreviated): - Mimmabip Gourkee: Seth talks about the WoW problem, where the more streamlined the game gets, the harder it is to connect with people. Do you guys see this problem happening in real life and do you have any experiences? - Gabe: What talent/ability do each of you have that might surprise us? - Alsastre: How many lines of code does Level Head consist of? What do you use for VCS? Dark or light mode? To stay up to date with all of our buttery goodness subscribe to the podcast on Apple podcasts (apple.co/1LxNEnk) or wherever you get your audio goodness.

You've just been Jevons'd.* *Quick correction: Jevons paradox is with an O, not an E. Whaddya know? We’re not dictionaries. OMG, the SHENANICON is THIS WEEKEND! Scufflin’, relays, T-shirts, and MORE. (Maybe you need a replacement mug because yours broke.) In any event, come hang out! Saturday, September 28th -- tickets and more info at http://meet.bscotch.net! Questions answered (abbreviated): - Scalepelexis: If I were to 3D model and print one game asset from your IP, what would you guys like to see? - Gua: Do you believe there's a place for small games on Steam, or is it better to invest time into the development of a bigger game? - Flyhoppie Axerompa: Do you have any examples of a time you brute forced your way through a task using what you know is clearly the wrong tool set, but succeeded anyway?

Greetings, Shenanites! This week, we talk phoenix tattoos, stick legs, and weaponized reporting. Is party time? Or is it time for swarming bottlenecks? Here’s a non sequitur pro-tip: if you read Anathem, you’ll have something to chat with Adam about. Questions answered (abbreviated): - Offampie Lomhoo: So this devops handbook says that there is never more than a single bottleneck in a value stream.

So, to alleviate confusion and add context, could you answer that question before this one? - RetroBananaManNL: How do you reflect after a gamejam? And how much time should you set out between jams to reflect? - CoffeeChemist: So the UK has the first game dev union. I'm very curious what the bscotch bros think of it. - Woland77: Game developers should probably unionize. Unions are great! But you are all Indies. What do you think? Would unionization in the AAA Dev world impact Indie Developers? Do you see any benefits or complications coming your way if that were to happen? - Angrymuffin: In episode 137, you talked about how having a blizzard subscription instead of a WOW subscription would be okay and may even feel less like buying a product. You hinted that this “may be the future of Rumpus.” Can this POSSIBLY BE SO?! Is this something that would be widely accepted or CRIPPLINGLY REJECTED?

Hi, Shenanites! This week we talk about epic moves (heh), the continuing saga of Fallout’s fallout, and why a back burner is just an incinerator.

Questions answered (abbreviated): - Woland77: I remember seeing in the settings for one of your older games that you implemented controls for the Sony Xperia Play, a gaming phone that never caught on.

RetroBananaManNL: Several prime numbered episodes have been passed without notice, so let's call out the next one like the old times. - cdcMully: In the game dev process by far my weakest point is the art. I've kinda been sticking to simpler art styles, but would eventually like to make a fun RPG with many weapons, armor and characters. Finding an artist would be ideal but it's just not viable at the moment as this is just a hobby for me.

Did you intentionally chose a music studio from your area? Could you talk about the importance of music/sound effects in your games, and any interesting ways you implement them? - Will: How do you handle being business partners and family?

[Ep165] Doppelgonged
Greetings, Shenanites! This week, we talk about consistency, fudging reality, and the ambiance of the universe. Did you know that good gameplay is 90% lies? And that 86% of people who make up statistics use the same percentage over and over? And that just because things are real doesn’t mean they’re true? Or maybe it’s the other way around... Answers to these rhetorical questions and more in this episode! Questions answered (abbreviated): - Anonymous: Hey guys- Love the podcast; and just to clarify, it was I who sent you the book. - CoffeeChemist: What goes into a jam on the bro end? - divo: You mentioned Level Head feeling best on mobile, but also had talked about multiplayer being at the core of certain levels. Are you guys working on implementing some ad-hoc bluetooth/wi-fi multiplayer for mobile devices? - Woland77: We all know that lying to your customers in marketing is scummy and probably illegal. In game design, when is it important, when is it necessary, to lie to your players? - Emoo117: If one of you had to go on a really long road trip and could only take one brother, which would it be? - mart: I'm a huge fan of Seth's "Saturday Morning Cartoon" streams! I'm also in Central Time and usually miss the first half due to that pesky sleeping thing. How do y’all wake up so early?

Bonus: there’s another Bscotchradamus prediction buried here somewhere. Grab a mug, inflate your blimp, and listen in! It’s blump not do. Questions answered (abbreviated): - divo: Do you feel an overwhelming pressure for your next game release to be nearly or as successful as the Crashlands release was? - aslkefjdf: Do you ever say, "I'm sure." Then Shi comes out and says, "No, I'm Shi."? - one_dead_saint: So I have refactored the phrase, you just gotta get in there. Basically you just gotta get in there is a longer version of Nike's slogan. How does this make you guys feel? - JustSomeDude: Is water wet? (Side question: is fire on fire? ) - CoffeeChemist: The BScotch crew are tasked with going into a deep dark dungeon. What classes are the crew rocking up in, and what would be the final boss?

[EP163] Dog Time
Hey there, Shenanites! This week we talk about living and working in dog time, the neverending metamorphosis of our games, and the invaluable impact of using different shapes and colors in game design. In our quest to conquer parallel parking, we’re ready to put aside our hopes of flying cars for sideways cars! And we’re looking to see if anyone is up for making the most epic game of all time, Hero Spa! Anyone? Anyone? Questions answered (abbreviated): - IrishLuck: How often do you remove a large portion of a game when you realize it doesn’t work? - ambersarcade: What are you doing in Levelhead and Scuffle Buddies to help people with disabilities play easier? In gamedev circles, can you tell if accessibility awareness/implementation is becoming more important before games are shipped (not in post-release patches)? - the_rumpus: You've mentioned the "Bscotch citadel of code" of useful scripts and such from jams and projects. What's your preferred way to archive stuff and easily access it for later? How is the Citadel sausage BUILT?! - Angrymuffin: In episode 24 (Sam’s Chest Meat) you talked about the value (or lack thereof) of things like Amazon Underground and using Humble Bundle within a year of a game launch. You said that these things help boost the tail end and used the example of 1-2 years after Crashlands launch “maybe” going to $5 on Steam and $1 on mobile. But you raised the price on mobile as lowering it had a negative effect on sales. Has this experimentation changed your view on lowering game prices well into the tail? - coolaboola: Hosting the first ever Global Level Head Level Jam on launch weekend?

Your games look so damn good for being so few frames! - zacyzacy: Do you guys use many shaders in your games? - Magicalmerlin5: I have worked with GameMaker before and I found it really clunky. How did you geniuses take something lame like GameMaker and create something beautiful like Crashlands? - MAP5597: What is the mystical substance known as juice? In space it's a blobby thing, and on Woanope's surface it's a crystal. Do the crystals serve as salt-licks for Wompits? What happens if the juice is ingested (is it known to the state of California to cause problems)? How is energy extracted from juice?
