Oh, a Podcast! #3: Grown-Ups Who Do Grown-Up Things


iTunes       YouTube

Happy Turkey Week, everyone! Stuck at the grown-ups table with your weird uncle and your cousins who voted for [person you didn’t want to win]? Pop in your ear-buds and drown them out with your favorite indie devs, Michael and Paul. This month, we’re talking about:

  • Frogs and frog butts
  • Using NaNoWriMo to write all the games we’ll be working on in the coming year
  • Designing games through Twitter and podcasts, just like Sid Meier used to do
  • How to slice tomatoes the wrong way
  • Explaining our job to actual adults
  • Rover from Cat President, and how he used to be way more racist
  • Logic puzzles vs. inventory puzzles
  • Michael’s detailed plan to make himself look like an old person
  • Should games have more musical numbers? (YES.)
  • Our earliest memories of playing videogames

All this, plus Paul lists some of the worst pizza-related pun names anyone could ever come up with. LISTEN. LISTEN NOW.

You can check the podcast out on iTunes or YouTube.

If you have questions about game development or any of our games, e-mail them to podcast@oharock.com, and we’ll answer them on the show! You can also follow us on Twitter; I’m @PaulMFranzen, and Michael is @arglefumph.

Games discussed in this episode: Pepper’s Adventures in Time, King’s Quest VII, Back to the Future: The Game, Super Mario Bros., Mickey Mousecapade, Super Mario World, Barbie Detective
