Show Notes

Twin Galaxies has flexed the almighty ban hammer against cheating for the second time in just a few months and this time it's against the self-proclaimed video game player of the century: Billy Mitchell. I have had the great fortune of having Scott as a friend of mine and he has been able to bring his wisdom on the the show a few times already, but this time he came to speak about his time at Twin Galaxies, working as a referee and also in his capacity as a historian helping rebuild the database. He chatted with me about the experiences he had in working with Billy before and after working for Twin Galaxies, and after in his time working in the gaming industry as a journalist, an advocate, and historian.

Dwarf Fortress: Toady One returns

Tarn Adams joins me on the show (again!) to talk about the full launch of Dwarf Fortress coming soon to Steam and itch.io. In our first conversation on episode 16 of the show, the full launch of the game seemed literally eons away so I wanted to bring him on to discuss the news, which broke in mid-March, and other development updates. He is joined periodically by his feline companion, Scamps. You can read more about Bay 12 Games at bay12games.com and follow them on social media at Twitter and Facebook.
