Podcast: Episode 209 – Auroch Digital, Global Game Jam & Hacknet

Pimpin' ain't easy.

Alas, there’s no Lewis for you on this week’s podcast. Don’t worry, he’d just double booked himself, and should be back next week. However, as promised on last week’s podcast, we were joined by a special guest for this week’s episode – long time friend of the show, Peter Willington.

Last time Peter was on the show he was still working at Pocket Gamer, but he’s since moved to the other side of the industry and is working over at Auroch Digital as a producer. He spent a little bit of time on the podcast promoting the games he’s been helping to created over there, and also shared his experience of the recent Global Game Jam.

In a fortunate turn of events, Kev had also taken part in the Global Game Jam, although working in Southampton, rather than Peter’s Bristol base. Both Kev and Peter told us all about the games they built, as well as the process of building them and Kev’s experiences of mentoring other teams.

As for me, I’ve been playing the title Hacknet, which is a hacking simulator in a similar vein to Uplink, but with more command prompt usage. On top of that we also delved into the week’s news and answered your questions.
