Gaslamp Interviews on DIY Gamer and Roguelike Radio

People keep wanting to talk to us even after they played Dungeons of Dredmor so we’ve got a couple interviews giving a bit of insight into the odd places in our heads that this whole mess spawned from, plus some talk of Things To Come.

First we chatted with a nice fellow from DIY Gamer and told him many things. Too many things, probably.

On DIY Gamer: Dungeons of Dredmor, Sonic Porn, Gaslamp Games’ Origin Story and MORE!

Then on Wednesday we recorded a interesting podcast with the fellows at Roguelike Radio. Here’s hoping it was heavily edited.

On Roguelike Radio: Interview with Gaslamp Games (developers of Dungeons of Dredmor)

Enjoy!

Media Roundup: Dredmor podcast & Gaslamp interview

Dungeons of Dredmor on Roguelike Radio

The new podcast Roguelike Radio did an entire show about Dungeons of Dredmor, check it out here. (Or on itunes.)

It’s fascinating to listen to people speak very seriously about our game and hear them speculate about what we were thinking when we made this or that design decision (odds are, we weren’t; they’re mostly acts of animal desperation drawn from the lowest id before the conscious mind comes up with a post-hoc justification).

Anyway, we’d be foolish not to be inspired by plunder the thoughts a seasoned pack of roguelike players/designers have about Dredmor — to this point, I’m pretty sure I just heard a great mechanic to act as a foundation for a cheesecrafting skill.

Gaslamp Games interviewed by Gaming Irresponsibly

An extremely patient fellow over at Gaming Irresponsibly has posted interview with us online which we finally got around to fully answering; check it out here.

One wonders if we really ought to say the things we say in public. Then again, we did make Dungeons of Dredmor public and we all know how that turned out. I also have to wonder why Nicholas keeps trying to start a hip-hop style feud with Notch. Have you seen the size of that guy’s posse? Man.

Why are you still reading this? Go read that interview while listening to the podcast.

Immortal Machines podcast interview

Nicholas and I were interviewed on the Immortal Machines podcast (an affiliate of Colony of Gamers) last week by the good bunch of guys there who were far too patient with certain Gaslampy … excesses. Now you can listen in to learn dark secrets about the Dungeons of Dredmor — about the unnatural habits of Thrusties, why Nicholas should not drink a pot of coffee on an empty stomach, and how much Dredmor isn’t going to cost. Here’s the link:

Immortal Machines episode 47: Gaslamp Games and Dungeons of Dredmor (or try the CoG post of the same, if you like)

Much thanks to the Immortal Machines guys for letting us on and to Colony of Gamers and their wonderful community for all their support!

The real question now is if they will ever make the mistake of letting us back on.

Video Games Podcasts I Listen To

Or: Why I listen to people talk about playing games instead of actually playing games.

Mostly.

I’m an artist, right? Right. I draw using my computer pretty much all the time. It’s what I do. Drawing (or ‘digital painting’ or ‘pixeling’ or whatever it is) doesn’t particularly engage the part of my brain that involves language unless I’m actually doing higher-level design. A lot of it is just painting away at something or pushing a lot of pixels. Oftentimes it’s not supremely engaging stuff like drawing lots and lots of bricks or painting lots and lots of clouds – all good and necessary things, yes, but the mind tends to wander. So I listen to stuff. Music works oftentimes, and the emotional content of the music often finds its way in to my art. Other times I want to listen to something I can think about, something relevant to what I’d like to be doing: game design.

I listen to internet audio shows about games. For some reason Apple has convinced us that these audio shows are to be called podcasts, and just as I eventually gave in to using the word “blog”, so too shall I adopt use of the word “podcast”.

These are the podcasts to which I continue to listen, with some of my thoughts.
