Episode 144: Fumblecore

July 21st, 2018 | 2:00 pm ET

Phil Tibitoski joins the pod to discuss giving advice to students inspired by the success of ‘Octodad.’

This week, Dylan is joined by Phil Tibitoski, CEO of Young Horses, developers of Octodad: Dadliest Catch.

Phil joins us a week before giving a talk at the game dev program at his alma mater, DePaul University, about his experiences in helping build Young Horses. We talk about the proper advice to give to aspiring developers for their post-graduation life and providing context for how Young Horses achieved success.

For those wishing to go into independent development, we discuss creating proper expectations, indie dev’s pros and cons, transitioning from a student project to a business, and learning from others, such as Microsoft and Rochester Institute of Technology’s analysis of Gamasutra postmortems.
