Dimensional Wayfarer developer CodeSavage Internet Sit-down

Contemplative and articulate, Jess Fender took the time to sit down over the Internet with me and discuss his first game development project Dimensional Wayfarer. Jess, A.K.A. CodeSavage, has a clear idea of what he wants and how to achieve it. He has the rare capacity to consider information in it’s entirety while smartly eschewing the compulsion to rush in to a conversation headstrong.

We utilized our time by discussing a bit of the theory that guides his first project, what his criteria are for a classic rogue-like game, and take a brief peek behind the intentionally drawn curtain to see his work-in-progress. So please, sit back, relax, and have a read with me.

For those who have frequented my YouTube channel, you may have seen my recent Let's Play with Black Ice developer Garrett Cooper, A.K.A. superdupergc. Garrett was also kind enough to sit down with me without the distraction of laz guns, web crawlers, and The Shark, so that we could discuss Black Ice uninterrupted by my penchant for anarchy and chat about his Indie game development experiences.

Garrett is a man of passion. He is in the enviable position of being able to 1) envision his ideal game 2) actually be able to make it. Charismatic and sociable, he works diligently and patiently to share his love with others so that they, too, can whittle away hours while blasting away foes.

Social Justice Warrior developer Eric Ford Internet Sit-down

There are very few issues around which everyone in the world can agree. The more personal a topic becomes the less likely that one will concede their vested interest in the name of polite debate and mature discourse. 

Introduce the optimistic Eric Ford A.K.A Nonadecimal who gives humanity more credit than most. I spoke with him about a recent project he launched called Social Justice Warriors, a project which seemed to elicit a lot of feedback from several communities. Not only were gamers engaged, but other indirect groups as well. One of his original goals was to shine a light on those that operate in the figurative shadows of ignorance and the faceless void we call the Internet. His aim is admirable and regardless of whether or not it will ultimately affect change he has my utmost respect for being brave enough to try.
