As we mentioned a few weeks ago, March has been filled with crazy travel for me. Originally we planned to record this week's podcast on the one (1) day I was going to be home before immediately flying out again to attend the Hearthstone Championship Tour. It certainly isn't the first time I've vastly overestimated the amount of time I had to do something, and it won't be the last. However, given the excitement surrounding the release of Death Road to Canada [$9.99], I've actually got the perfect rewind episode to throw in the feed from the first time Rocketcat Games and Madgarden fist bumped and made a game together. We loved the game when it was released, and on this old episode of the podcast we chat with Kepa and Paul about what went into making it and their decisions behind how many of the mechanics work. It's actually fascinating to go back and listen to now, as it seems the same vibe has persisted in Death Road.

We'll be back with a normal podcast episode (with a video version for Patreon backers) next week. I've got some other cool video stuff I've got planned for the future too, I just ... need to be more, for more than a day.

Don't forget to shoot us emails with any questions, feedback, or anything else relevant or irrelevant to podcast@toucharcade.com.

POST SHOW NOTE: The audio quality in this episode is all over the place. You'll notice that it's especially quiet. We had to level it out like this though, or else it would have been mega-hard to listen to. Sorry about the inconvenience in advance.

    Madgarden has lost all credibility with me. Taking the Kickstarter money and running is one thing. Staying around is another level entirely. Not supporting him or anything he is associated with again.

      Shame on TA for supporting folks like this as well.

      Can anyone elaborate?

      What?

        Your beef is with Jeff McCord then, not Madgarden.

      • tommet

        Why not both?

      • http://toucharcade.com Eli Hodapp

        It's Jeff McCord's project, he was just paying Madgarden to work on it.

      • tommet

        Sure sounded like more of a joint project when Madgarden was posting in the forums.

    Am I missing something here? The podcast is talking about Punch Quest as if it's a new game, but it's been around for five years.

      Never mind. I just read the intro paragraph.
