About this podcast

Video games are getting smaller and easier to make every day, and if we can do it, anyone can. Join the developers of Cat President, The Beard in the Mirror, A STRANGER COMES CALLING and more as we talk about the games we're making, the games we're playing, and how aspiring developers don't have to be "aspiring" anymore; they can just be developers. (And also make dumb jokes. Lots of dumb jokes.)

If you have questions about game development or any of our games, e-mail them to podcast@oharock.com, and we'll answer them on the air!
