How to cook a better monster with Battle Chef Brigade’s Tom Eastman

Only 3 more episodes of Sup Holmes left!

[Sup Holmes is a weekly talk show for people that make great video games. It airs live every Sunday afternoon on YouTube, and can be found in podcast form on Libsyn and iTunes.]

Today on Sup Holmes we’re happy to welcome Tom Eastman of Trinket Studio to program. Tom and his small team are currently hard at work on Battle Chef Brigade, the world’s one and only hunting and cooking, beat ’em up puzzle game. 

We’ll be talking to Tom about all the pros and cons of making an impossibly attractive videogame with about as many people as you could fit on a couch, the studio’s heroes like Studio Ghibli and Takeshi Kaga, sexy ogres, improvisation as a game design element, and a lot more. 

This is the 3rd to last episode of the show, so if you ever wanted to have your name immortalized on the live broadcast, now is your 3rd to last chance! Ask us a question or two on the live broadcast and we’ll do our best to answer it. Show starts live at 2:30pm EST.

Just like in a Gameboy game... a nice tight little world... and all its inhabitants... made out of little building blocks... Why can't these little pixels be the building blocks for love..?
