Sup, Holmes? with Thomas Was Alone dev Mike Bithell

12:30 PM on 08.12.2012 // Jonathan Holmes


[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.]

Sup, Holmes? is back after a week hiatus, and we've got a handsome man who made a videogame about "frindship and jumping and floating and anti-gravity". Sounds pretty neat, right? The game is called Thomas Was Alone, and handsome man's name is Mike Bithell. We're going to find out on the show today if he's pretty neat, or if he just makes videogames that are pretty neat. Either way, we can't lose.

I'm going to talk to him about pros and cons of abstraction, the differences (or lack of differences) between art that attempts to depict the external world and art that works to display the artist's the internal world, hamburgers, and a whole lot more! The show starts at 1pm PST/4pm EST, so watch us talk and ask us questions!
