Super Gamer 82 – Daniel Voth’s Journey

Daniel Voth is a super nice guy who’s always gone out of his way to say hello to me at events. He’s also a major contributor in the Winnipeg gaming scene. He’s a project manager at Bit Space Development, administrator of IGDA Winnipeg, and co-coordinator of Winnipeg Game Jam.

After talking about how Daniel got to be so involved in the gaming community, we get deep into perception and language and relationships in games, and we answer the question: Can Daniel walk on his hands?

Super Gamer episode 69 – All Star Gaelic Football

Today’s guest is Peadar McMahon of Mojopin Studios. Mojopin is making a Gaelic football game, and is looking for funding. Gaelic football is awesome, but Peadar says an old video game franchise of it on PS2 was not. Mojopin is shooting for awesome with its game. Check out the Kickstarter here.

I forgot to ask Peadar about the leniency refs give in Gaelic when it comes to dribbling the ball. To me — someone who has seen very little Gaelic and knows very little about the sport — it looks like Gaelic refs follow the NBA rulebook when it comes to travelling.

If one of you fine listeners can fill me in, leave a comment below.

I love chiptunes. Who doesn’t love chiptunes? It brings me so much happiness to hear those sounds, and it makes me want to dance!

Well here’s my talk with Lazy Nerd 204, a chiptune artist and gamedev based in Winnipeg. One of his songs, Sup Day (I Spelled Sunday Wrong), is featured in the episode. I love it, I’m sure you will too!
