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 we are happy to have our good friend and Internet celebrity Conrad Kreyling (@konistehrad) as our guest! You may know him from our PAX Dev panel, or perhaps from Johnny Wander. He's an all around awesome dude who also happens to work at Muse Games (who you may know from the recent hit Guns of Icarus: Online).
We talk about how he became an awesome geek and exceptional coder (he's RIT alum: we've known him since he cosplayed as safety barrels cosplaying as Naruto). We hit on Guns of Icarus, MOBAs, video cards, fighting games, Wreck-It Ralph, Looper, James Bond, Tycho's Prostate Rap from PAX East 2011, and Chamisou Original.
Tonight on GeekNights, thanks to @konistehrad, we have Adam Becker, the Freelance Astrophysicist, as our guest. We talk a lot about science! Along the way, we hit on the differences between a Computational Cosmologist (which Adam is) and other disciplines, consider the true implications of general relativity at the macro scale, ask "where all the lumpy" came from, consider the perfect pencil, question the Standard Model, wonder about "astro" versus "quantum," and finally get into how one gets into a field like this.
Tonight on GeekNights, we have as our guest Luke Crane, designer of the wonderful Mouse Guard tabletop role playing game. We discuss what Mouse Guard is, where it came from, and what makes it unique. We actually had Luke on the show a while ago to talk more generally about role playing games, so check that out while you're here!
Tonight on GeekNights, straight out of Burning Apocalypse Con, we have Jared Sorensen in the studio to talk about, among other things, Z-Ward, Danish roleplaying, Lacuna 2, conventions, Action Castle, and movies.
Tonight on GeekNights, in preparation for the upcoming Burning Apocalypse Con, we bring the right honorable Luke Crane on the show to talk about, in case you couldn't guess, Burning Apocalypse Con. We also chat about Greg Stafford's Pendragon, RISK Legacy, and Burning Wheel Gold.
Luke Crane also has a special announcement. In benefit to the medical bills of an important member of the Burning Wheel crew hospitalized with stroke, Luke will be creating a custom Mouse Guard hack, the details of which will be forthcoming.
