Hello 2019! We had huge plans for the Christmas show. If you don’t believe me, check out the functioning Unity game I made to show off as a joke. But being the family guys that we are, the actual holidays got in the way. So it’s back to business here in the new year. I’ll be showing you the process of launching my new development company, you’ll hear from more expert guests than ever before, and we’re even about to do our first giveaway–it’s something I absolutely love, and if you’re a listener, there’s a good chance you’ll love it too.
For the first time ever, this is a show full of community topics! We got a great question about Epic’s new game store, insightful feedback about the game jam issues I discussed in the last show, and we shared the frustration of parents seeking to find the right approach for responsible screen time restrictions for younger players.
Finally, we examine the reasons you need to have a real, legal company formed if you’re doing business as a game studio, and how to go about it if you haven’t yet. Don’t take my word for it, we’re looking at the advice of video game development attorney Zachary Strebeck and his excellent advice at Black Shell Media.
We’re just getting started for the year. Stay tuned for the exciting activities we’re working on for the near future! We love your feedback and your reviews. More soon!
