Did Pirates of the Caribbean rip off Monkey Island?

Oct 26 // Jonathan Holmes
[embed]283049:56111:0[/embed] Despite my fanboy freak out, we still had an amazing conversation. We talked about working with George Lucas, how frustrations with other games can inspire innovations in his own designs, the influence of Blazing Saddles on the ending of Monkey Island 2, his thoughts on modern adventure games like Lone Survivor, Kentucky Route Zero, and The Stanley Parable, the actual secret of Monkey Island,  how 90% of your ideas suck, why that's OK, his dream to return to Monkey Island, the game he's planning now, and so much more.  I also couldn't help but squeeze out some resentment I'd been holding in. Those Pirates of the Caribbean movies? They should have been Monkey Island movies. To me, that's what they were -- poor man's Monkey Island movies. Ron seemed to know exactly what I meant, though he was a little more composed and respectful than I was. He certainly looked calm. In fact, I don't think I've ever seen someone look so consistently relaxed. Maybe it's because his face is made entirely of squares. I bet that helps.  Thanks again to Ron for being on the show, and if you want to meet the creators of Adventures of Pip and maybe win a code for Devil's Dare, tune in for the live show here at 4pm EST. We'd love talk to you and give you things.

Fear, Disney, positivity, Zynga and more with Erin Reynolds

Mar 04 // Jonathan Holmes
"I rarely talk about this, but I'm actually pretty shy by default. Painfully shy sometimes. When I first started making games, everything scared and overwhelmed me. I loved making games and working directly with the people who made games alongside me, but socializing, networking, just reaching out and saying 'hi' to fellow game developers was super scary and uncomfortable for me. However, I knew that I wouldn't be able to achieve many of my personal goals if I stayed in my limited comfort zone. So, I decided to dive head-first into the terrifying and worked my way up to be the president of an 800+ student organization (SCFX) toward the end of my undergraduate career to force me to have to constantly be pushing beyond those boundaries. As a result of that experience, I became less afraid of meeting new people and more comfortable with professional social settings in general. I even gained leadership skills that I never thought I had. I'm still secretly pretty shy, but I've been fortunate enough to have had enough opportunities to learn how to cope with that for the most part. Thinking about it, there may have been some subconscious inspiration for Nevermind in that journey. In terms of other fears - I have a few! Can't stand spiders (like many folks), I tend to have a ton of anxiety issues when driving, and I have one pretty odd fear that developed when I was a small child... but unfortunately I can't share that one just yet as it's a Kickstarter stretch goal reveal!" Thanks again to Erin for appearing on the show, and tune in to Sup Holmes with Sunday at 1pm PST/4pm EST when we welcome Jane Jensen to the program.
