Panda’s Talking Games – 88: Designed by Pandas

Show us how you like to design games!Phil and Senda try (and FAIL) to crunch two design topics in to one show, and so this is part I: wherein we talk about our design processes, theories, and work spaces. Phil seems to have forgotten that Senda sings and she can’t pronounce “finagle.” Senda’s favorite notebook is from Studio Oh! and no matter how dirty they made that sound she loves it for opening flat (it’s the deconstructed kind)!
