STR 54: Pixel Poetry Games As Art.

This episode is a bit of a departure from our usual. Instead of talking exclusively about retro games we mainly tackle a  more philosophical gaming topic. We talk with Richard Cook, indie game developer, indie film maker, 3D artist, and musician about what it takes to make a game. We also delve into the issue of whether or not games can be considered art and his new film, which he is trying to get funding for, Pixel Poetry: A defining film about the transcendence of art through technology.

Richard was an interesting guy to talk to and we hope you enjoy the interview. Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays from Stalking The Retro.
