    Hey folks,

    The next podcast interview is now available.

    Andy from Pocketwatch Games (makers of Wildlife Tycoon) talks about his journey in game development.

    You can check it out here...

    Also...I am looking for folks willing to do an interview. If you've released a game and would like to do an interview...PM me.

    As usual, send over any feedback you have. I do know the audio could be better...and keep in mind this is one of the earlier interviews done. Since then, there is better audio equipment in use.

    Also...if you have questions you would like me to add future interviewees, let me know.

    Later,
    Curiosoft

    Sorry I was too far away from the microphone for a little while. In real life my voice is deep and loud and manly, I promise.

    Actually this interview turned out pretty well. It was fun doing it, in any case.

    I've listened to all of these (while coding normally) and will get around to this one over the next day or so. Keep up the good work! :)

    Great interview. I'm happy someone is doing this. I would still like to have a podcast option, so it would just hop onto my iPod and I could play them anywhere without having to do it manually. But I can be patient. :)

    Keep up the great work on these. I find them very valuable.

    Thanks for the comments.

    I always appreciate the feedback.

    To Rohomech:
    The transcript idea is good. If someone is willing to volunteer, I'll be happy to put transcripts on the site. Maybe someone can organize 2-4 people to do it. One does the first quarter, the next does the 2nd quarter, etc.

    To Cartman:
    Yeah, I submitted for an ITunes listing. I did it for only one of the podcasts. I'll see whether the bandwidth issues of putting stuff on ITunes is reasonable and go from there.

    So...I am listening to feedback and taking steps to improve the show. Send over anything else you may have :)

    Take care,
    Curiosoft

    I posted over on the Garage Games forums, but you probably didn't see it so I'll post here too. I really enjoyed listening to these. Downloaded all of them and listened to them the other day while I was programming.

    I'd, of course, be happy to do part of the transcript. I love listening to myself talk. Almost as much as I love retyping my own words. I am, in fact, looking adoringly at myself in the mirror as we speak. Seriously, I'll do part of it. I think more important though is adjusting the volume levels...

    Cool,

    Send over the transcript for the second half of the episode :)

    As for the volume levels, someone has volunteered to fix them for future podcasts. We'll see how it goes.

    Take care,
