Description

Tobiah Marks is like me - a guy who talks about Microsoft stuff - only Tobiah talks about games. He talks about 2D games, 3D games, mobile games, PC games. You name it. Tobiah made Blast Monkeys which has been a huge hit, and is available on multiple platforms.

In this episode of CodeChat, I steal a little bit of Tobiah's time to chat about the state of the game development industry and discuss everything from frameworks, to entry points for aspiring game devs, to a 3D pizza printing machine.

I apologize in advance for the relatively poor audio. I lost a file, so the audio you hear is recorded straight from the GoPro camera and is less than the best for an interview.

Thanks for watching CodeChat.
