The gang invited Eric Trowbridge, the founder of Apixal, to come onto the show and talk about the harrowing adventure of quitting your job to start an indie studio and going through Kickstarter to fund your first game.
Eric is working on the intriguing Phoenix Dawn, a gorgeous low-poly style third-person RPG that tells the tale of a young girl named Phoenix as she explores a wide world of magic and adventure. If you're interested in learning more, check out the Kickstarter page. There are currently less than three days remaining in the campaign and the project is fully funded. It raised nearly $10,000 the day after Eric recorded with us. Coincidence? No. Our podcast is magic!
Music for this episode is a remix of The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker, 'Forever Yours' by the talented Tim Sheehy. More great music like this can be found over on OCRemix.org (FOR FREE). Head over there and check out a place flowing with musical talent!
We'll also be posting a giant giveaway blog of massively large proportions, so keep an eye peeled for that!
Be sure to follow the show's Twitter @indieandmojo for updates on the show or check out our show's app on the Amazon app store!
We'd love to hear more from our listeners, tweet at us!
