Episode 200: Mr. Bull

On this, our 200th Wardcast, we take the time to appreciate the little things. Namely: we eulogize a Mario clone that was too good for this world, find ourselves in the throng of JRPGs and CRPGs alike, and put a cap on last week’s conversation about the Steam Summer Sale’s effect on indies.

Games include Mario Royale, Flappy Royale, HexSweep, Outer Wilds, Final Fantasy XII: The Zodiac Age, The Arcana: A Mystic Romance, Dream Daddy: A Dad Dating Simulator, Divinity: Original Sin II, Deltarune Chapter 1, Splatoon 2, and Super Mario Maker 2.

Episode 199: Waffles & Eggs

Ben Wander, designer at indie studio The Wandering Band, joins us to talk about what indies get up to at E3.

We also chat about his time at Visceral Games before going indie to make A Case of Distrust, the post-release slump devs can find themselves in, and building a team to collaborate on their studio’s new game, Airborne Kingdom.

We share thoughts on if there’s a benefit to having a demo for your game on Steam and the eShop, reflect on the Steam Summer Sale Grand Prix debacle, and more!
