This week, we go deep into our guest bench for a pair of Wardcast locals: Sam Loeschen, developer on Silent Earth, back in RVA after living on the west coast and abroad; and Justin Mitchell, developer on War of Velana, here with another fresh food minute.

On the docket today: the landscape for mobile devs looking for a publisher, Blender’s recent epic mega grants, hiring practices we’d prefer not to see, and some straight scrummin’.

Games include Cadence of Hyrule, Outer Wilds, and Dragon Quest Builders 2.
