913168_largerWe had another week with a ton of email, so again the first half of the podcast was dedicated to discussing it. A reader asked us questions about Clash of Clans (Free), then we had a query about the app and t-shirts, along with some other stuff. From there, we shifted gears to discussing a bit of Monsters Ate My Metropolis (Free), a tiny bit of Hearthstone (Free), with the bulk of the time going to the upcoming Pac-Man 256, which is working out to be an amazing game. Oh, and we discuss a couple books along with the crazy parallels between self publishing a book and self publishing a iOS game. The two books discussed as The Martian and Wool.
