Getting fired, indie infighting and survival with David G


8:00 PM on 11.09.2013



Last Sunday on Sup Holmes (now on iTunes) we welcomed David Gallant to the program. David made the papers earlier this year for his game I Get This Call Everyday -- an autobiographical comedy/tragedy game about his work in a call center. The game led to David losing his job and flinging himself into the game development world. Flinging yourself is pretty exciting, but its also risky, and inevitably painful. 

We talked with David about the things that motivated him to make these decisions, the recent disagreements and misunderstandings that hovered around the Indie Custom Cube, Steam Greenlight feelings, the anger and fear brewing in "gamer culture" today, how to resolve that brew in the most constructive way possible, his favorite game on the Oculus Rift, eating magical brownies with Richard Hofmeier, and a whole heck of a lot more. 

Thanks again to David for appearing on the program, and be sure to tune in tomorrow at 1pm PST/4pm EST when we welcome Holly Pickering (Lego Batman, Ether One) to the show.
