Episode 80 – Gamers to the North

Retro_City_Rampage

Canada’s game industry contributed 2.3 billion dollars to the country’s GDP, according to ESA Canada. Some of the best games of last year came out of Canada. The strongest development communities call cities in Canada their home. These are not insignifigant elements to making a stronger world-wide game industry.

We invite real-life Canadian and creator of Retro City Rampage, Brian Provinciano, on to the show to talk about indie development communities, solid game studios, and the Full Indie Summit. We also talk about how major game studios are positioning themselves in Canada and how it’s helping/hurting.

Brian also regales us with the tales of his nightmarish distrobution schedule and organization across platforms and regions. Important information for anyone looking to publish their game themselves.

Featuring music from Kris Keyser’s self titled album.

Episode 36 – Blip Festival 2012


Blip Festival is often considered three nights of the world’s best chip music. For the artists, visualists, vendors, and die hard fans it’s more of a chip summer camp, with everyone who was once shrouded by the veil of the internet appears in person. With everyone gathered together it becomes a homecoming, a way for people to connect with others in a way that wasn’t possible in every day life. This is the chip scene; for this Blip I talk with the chip/bent trio Burnkit 2600, Atari/Commodore/Game Boy virtuoso cTrix and master of visualizations, Batsly Adams, on topics from artist specialties and their favorite hardware and software to the nuts and bolts of how they work and their opinion on the scene today. I want to thank all of them for breaking away from the schedule of the festival to sit down and talk with me.
