Text adventures and flamethrowers with Zoe Quinn

[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.]

Sorry for the bad sound this week! I did a bit of yelling because Zoe Quinn dropped so many bombs on me. She’s cultivated a program that encourages women to become game developers. She’s the designer of a fighting game that uses REAL FLAMETHROWERS. She’s working to make the text adventure relevant again. It’s hard not to get loud when someone is doing so many incredible things at once.

Tune in next Sunday at 1pm PST/4pm EST (either here on front page or on our Twitch channel) for our next live stream podcast where we talk to Damian Sommer about his weird ass games. It will be fun for all.

"Where do dreams end and reality begin? Videogames, I suppose."- Gainax, FLCL Vol. 1 "The beach, the trees, even the clouds in the sky... everything is build from little tiny pieces of stuff. 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..? For loss... for understanding"- James Kochalka, Reinventing Everything part 1 "I wonder if James Kolchalka has played Mother 3 yet?" Jonathan Holmes
