Two other animators in the games industry and myself do a semi-regular podcast, where we talk to different professionals in and around the industry about the behind the scenes of games, art and animation.
Our latest episode (#31) is roundtable with two of us plus the Chandana “Eka” Ekanayake, Art Director and John Comes, Creative Director, both from Uber Entertainment, creators of this summer's XBLA game "Monday Night Combat." We talk a bit about their process of making a fully 3d/Unreal 3 game for the smaller budget XBLA market and discuss their take on the current state of the downloadable market.
This is a special episode, since Uber was kind enough to donate a few codes for free copies of "Monday Night Combat" for Xbox Live for a holiday contest! Check out the episode and web site for details how you can win.
