Checkpoints is an amazing podcast by Declan Dineen. In each episode he interviews a different game developer and dives into their game development process and life experiences which results in really interesting interviews with some of the most well known developers from around the world. If you haven’t heard of the podcast before here are some of my favourite episodes:
- Episode 34: William Pugh (Stanley Parable)
- Episode 45: Chris Remo (Gone Home, Firewatch)
- Episode 59: Edmund McMillen (Super Meat Boy, Binding of Isaac)
- Episode 63: Alex Preston (Hyper Light Drifter)
Every few episodes he releases an Autosave episode which features several smaller interviews with different developers. The episode released today talks about the process of becoming a game developer and features Kate Gray, Jacob Hartmann, Cheri Skivinton, Michael Wells, Kyle Kukshtel, Tuuka Stefanson, Jasper Trenfield and myself. You can listen to the episode here (I’m on at around 16 minutes 30 seconds) and, if you haven’t already, make sure to subscribe to the podcast!
