This week, we’re joined by Amanda Hudgins, creator of the 1000 Button Project and managing editor at Unwinnable.

Dylan and Amanda discuss game dev in the South – the stigma that comes with it as well as only being associated with the nearest AAA publisher, even if it’s in another state.

Amanda also chats about the indie dev scene in Lexington, Kentucky, supported by RunJumpDev; game tastes influencing criticism; the TED Talk Simulator; and balancing game dev with full-time editorial work. Oh, and we discuss Amanda’s love of food trucks.

Lastly, we speak on the continuing effects of GamerGate and harassment in game development and games journalism, Amanda’s thoughts on the matter, and how no one seems to be doing anything about it.
