The wonderful Ron Gilbert joins James and Paul once again for a wildly unfocussed conversation at this year’s PAX Australia. How do we connect Halloween, Mars travel, Envirobear, hidden object games, PewDiePie and rum? We’re not sure.
Paul and James have a chat with Mitch Gitelman about his coming and goings. We talk Shadowrun, Golem Arcana, and secret projects that most certainly aren’t Crimson Skies… maybe…
Join us on our poorly planned, but mostly informative, adventure!
And don’t forget to check out Golem Arcana currently near the end of its Kickstarter!
Paul and James caught up with Ryan DeGange – developer of the kickstarted military-feline puzzler “Combat Cats” (iOS/Android). He shares his kickstarter experience, what worked, what didn’t, and what he would do differently.
Also, there is meat and naked men wielding assault rifles.
More after the jump.
The following recording contains language which may cause offence to some listeners.
We chat to the notorious film maker and politically incorrect person, Uwe Boll about his kickstarter for Postal 2, film career, funding, his life and reputation plus anything else that came to mind. For instance if you ever day dreamed over what Uwe Boll thought of Nicolas Winding Refn’s “Only God forgives” you’re in for a treat!
At PAXAUS 2013, we had the pleasure of using the noisy media room to catch up with Ron Gilbert in person. You don’t get to meet him in the flesh, you just get to hear him again, but pretty awesome for us, right? We follow up on our Monkey Island/Bioshock Infinite/Lost cross over theory, discuss the role of Kickstarter, potential issues with Oculus Rift and raiding in World of Warcraft. Oh, and rum. Listen to our previous interview with Ron here.
Mel Croucher founded one of the UK’s first video game studios in 1977, Automata. Now he is kickstarting a sequel to his classic 1984 Game Deus Ex Machina. From Radio underground game distribution, treasures in horse’s anuses and phallic walking sticks we cover everything you didn’t even know you needed to know in one of our most interesting discussions ever. If you only listen to one Eight and a Half bit interview this year, listen to this one!
