[Destructoid's Director of Communications Hamza Aziz asked Jonathan Holmes to make a show called 'Sup, Holmes?' so that Destructoid could later sell a t-shirt that says 'Sup, Holmes?' on it. This is that show. Subscribe to the podcast feed and find more episodes here.]
Local competitive multiplayer has made a big comeback in recent years, especially among game developers. One the devs leading that movement is young Beau Blyth, Batman fan artist and developer of Fish Face, Samurai Gunn, 0Space, and the LA Game Space headlining title LA Death Disk. Also, LA Death Disk features dancing men with giant flat tops, and that's pretty great.
We'll be talking to Beau about the advantages and disadvantages of making competitive games, what it's been like developing on his own in the current state of games today, why his games have resonated so well with other developers, his definition of "fighting game," and much more. Join us at 1pm PST/4pm EST to get to know this strange young man!
