GMTalk Game Maker Podcast – Episode 5: Jesse Venbrux

GMTalk LogoSince the last episode of GMTalk we have seen some major developments at YoYo Games with the release of their first three iPhone and iPad games.

They Need to Be Fed author Jesse Venbrux guests alongside usual presenters Andrew McCluskey, Jack Brockley and myself in this 35 minute show (recorded Saturday).

Jesse talks about his recent blog post on converting games for use on iPhone and iPad, his new job in Japan and beating Andrew at bowling.

We also briefly discuss a few other topics such as iPad gaming, the Game Maker’s Companion and (possibly) the next game YoYo Games will be releasing.

If there is anyone in particular you would like to hear on a future show please let us know in the comments.
