TKV Team Podcast 29 | “Indie Heat of the Night”

TKVTeam_Logo2015This week’s show is half  timely continuation of last week’s crowd-funding discussion, and half tales from the great white north. Karol and Tim return from Toronto Spring Bit-Bazaar and TCAF 2015 with tales of indie gems, smelly patrons, and overt gluttony.

Impressions from a whole subset of indie titles , including weird chess, glorified ABCs, and one game where you ride rabbit-rainbows to fight Ursa Major in the sky round out a pretty impressive showing. Igarashi’s up to something amazing, and Karol predicts a surprisingly likely future for Hideo Kojima.

TKV Team Podcast 28 | “Beast with Two Backers”

TKVTeam_Logo2015For this week’s show, Karol leads off a conversation about the trends and outlook of crowd-funding for videogames. In particular, the recent bump in heavily funded projects for classic 3D adventure games may signal a new hope for a forgotten genre. Tim reflects on the good, the bad and the ugly of how investment by audiences can effect the relationship between fans and creators. Examples span the industry, from racing games to pinball machines.

Karol is surprisingly tactful while talking about Peter Molyneux and 22 Cans.
