ARGcast #36: Surviving Indie with Richard James Cook
What goes on in the day-to-day life of an indie game developer? Some times the truth ain’t pretty, at least according to the documentary Surviving Indie by our guest Richard James Cook. Get a taste on what it truly means to follow your passion no matter the consequences.
Could it be that Capcom has finally started listening to its fans? With word from the company itself that dormant franchises might be coming back, we all reflect on which ones we would most like to see. Be sure to let us know which ones you’d like to see also by emailing us!
The Stage of History starts off by going a little further back than last week’s Pong with the educational classic The Oregon Trail. Things get fast and bloody quickly with id Software’s big breakout hit Doom, then the kicking and punching (it’s all in mind) comes out with PaRappa the Rapper. That and our usual game giveaways, this time for Punch Club and Thumper. Hit ’em hard and hit ’em fast, ARGonauts!
