I would love an episode on the possibility, limitations and value of using game design as a medium for self expression.

I think the science behind not telling anyone, is that subconsciously you are passing the responsibility to someone else. That way if you fail you have someone else to blame for not encouraging you or giving you advice.

I think this is why I had run to the Unity forums to declare that I had some grand game idea. If I fail then its on them. It's pretty messed up but I think that's how our brains work sometimes.

I only discovered your podcast on Monday. I love it! You're absolutely right, there are not many podcasts like this out there!

It's worth it for the community, certainly, for you to continue this podcast and I hope that you'll continue for as long as it's worth it to you as well!

I will be trying the 12 week challenge as making a game has been something I've been trying to do off and on for almost 2 years and I always get frustrated when progress is slow. I hope you keep doing these podcasts I am loving them.

Hi,

Just wanted to say that I've really be enjoying the podcast so far and the range of topics you've discussed. I thought feedback style of "Yes,  and" was a great inclusion in a previous episode.

I've been intensively studying/working for a while and haven't had time to properly work on the game I started a while ago and it's just becoming an idea factory at this point.  I'm definitely going to jump on the 12 week challenge at the end of the semester to finish my first game and get my process in order before returning to my "main project".  Thanks for the challenge!
