Tonight on GeekNights, we have Josephine Fu, Game Producer at Date Nighto, here to talk about their latest project - Hustle Cat - and what it's like to work for a small game studio. We also return to our old "Profiles in Geek" shtick with a deep interview on her anime preferences, hobbies, and all that fun stuff. Hustle Cat is on Kickstarter, and has just ONE WEEK left to go!
Conrad Kreyling, founder of Date Nighto who once saw a ghost, joins us to talk about the mad odyssey of founding a game studio, making visual novels, and life in general. Starfighter, Hustle Cat, and now more newly announced titles! SDGQ 2015 is over, with an epic Chrono Trigger finale. Battle for Wesnoth (which we've discussed on GeekNights before) desperately needs developers. Scoville is pretty good.
Join us at PAX Prime 2015, where Jo (also from Date Nighto), three other smart people, and us are going to talk about games!
Tonight on GeekNights, Scott literally forgot to come to the studio, so rather than demonstrate the GeekNights process to our studio guest, I put Judith (@loltsundere) on the spot and made her a guest host. So what do we talk about? A bunch of meta about how GeekNights is made. Also Adventure Time, Teen Titans Go, Gay Marriage Victory, how horrible Louisiana is, the ridiculous Neckbeard Benghazi that is "#gamergate", and a bunch of other stuff. It's totally fun.
Tonight on GeekNights, with Emily replacing Scott, we talk about The Daily Show (which Rym has watched for a decade longer than Emily has) and Last Week Tonight. In the news, we talk about the ridiculous and tragic situation in Ferguson and what happens when you give small town police departments in racially tense regions paramilitary hardware and little oversight. Also, change.
Tonight on GeekNights, we discuss the continuing seasons of Adventure Time! While we did previously review Adventure Time, it's definitely worth further discussion. As the seasons have gone by, it's become increasingly dark, pointed, and serious. We've brought the big guns with our good friend and Adventure Time expert Judith. In the news, Ghost in the Shell: Arise Borders one and two are screening in several cities, and the delightful Drops of God is ending in June. The GeekNights Forum is continuing to rock, and you should be there.
Tonight on GeekNights, reviving our ancient Profiles in Geek format, we have Karl Custer, aka Uncle Yo (@UncleYo), to talk about himself, his geekery, puppets, and Dungeon Crawlers! He's up to some good stuff!
Tonight on GeekNights, Rym and Emily give a full review, as well as some final thoughts, on Shin Sekai Yori - From the New World. It's a solid show with a complex story, good characters, and a surprising ending.
