Depression, poverty, and powerlifting with the creator of Electronic Super Joy


Get to know the people who make great videogames

[Sup Holmes is a weekly talk show for people that make great videogames. It airs live every Sunday at 4pm EST on YouTube, and can be found in Podcast form on Libsyn and iTunes.]

We're taking a break from Sup Holmes this week because Sinistar had to take a trip to Venus. We'll be back next week though, with a guest that is sure to enlighten.

We've got plenty of reruns to keep you occupied in the meantime though, like this recent episode with Michael Todd, creator of Electronic Super Joy and the upcoming "Free-to-Play done right" nautical combat game Scurvy Devils. Among other things, he talked about being home schooled, suffering from depression, the pros and cons of working alone, how interacting with his fans keeps him going, the importance of Cassie Chui, and surprisingly enough, the role of powerlifting in his creative process.

Michael is a fun, funny man and I'm grateful to have had the opportunity to speak with the him.
