Episode 10: this is why we don’t bring fire cannons to birthday parties
Date: Thursday, March 21, 2019
Description: Clipping the microphone. Breaking the internet. Bursting bright blue birthday balloons and blazing blocks into oblivion. Sound fun? Join Baylee and I as we play a balloon popping mini game being worked on by Ivan Soto, because it’s bout to be my B day yall, and then Lazer breakout by the same guy who created Burger King ahem I mean BK 1, 2, and 3. Oh yeah, and watch what happens when I plug my computer in! It really doesn’t like that.Download the Episode
Episode 9: Destruction time! If you can aim the damn thing, Yukio.
Date: March 7, 2019
Description: In this episode, I begin by playing the mission mode of Marina Break, the breakout/pinball style game created by Yukio Nazawa, the same dude who created the BK series! And yes, I do spend like 3 minutes on two of the levels smacking the ball around – but it’s not because I can’t aim, it’s because Yukio the developer made it too hard. Yeah, that’s right. It’s not my fault at all! Ahem anyway, after that I demonstrate a Breakout concept of my own, and finally I end with a demonstration of the new voiceovers in Scramble! I hope you enjoy this Episode that lasted way longer than I thought it would!
Episode 8: the Ultimate Downfall to Havin’ a Ball is Getting Bonked on the Head
Date: February 22, 2019
Description: Whether it’s rocks, slime, or flying electrified lamps, we find out that getting bonked on the head by anything is really not a good way to go!
Listen as I first demonstrate Scramble once more, as well as a new intense, platforming minigame I recently added to it! Then, we move on to BK3, and complete the tutorial and half of stage 1! (Yeah… I know. I couldn’t complete the rest because of those damn flying lamps!
Episode 7: Read the Manual, or Die in a Horrible Alien Invasion as you Watch Everyone Else Get Abducted by Mutants.
Date: Feb 8, 2019
Description: What, none of that sounds pleasant to you? Yeah, me neither. That’s exactly what I had to endure however, when I decided to play Villains From Beyond and Dark Defender, two retro style arcade space invaders games from Oriol Gomez and Guillem Leon, without reading either of the manuals first. Though both can be categorized as space invaders, each presents a highly unique twist on the concept that makes it vastly different from most other games in the genre. So even if space invaders aren’t your cup of tea, you won’t want to miss this one! And who knows, those who don’t like space invaders might just change their minds for these two games.

Episode 6: Coins, Rock Music… oh and Horrible Death.
Date: January 25, 2019
Description: This podcast features just me, Steven D. I start the podcast off by providing an opinion-based game play review of the Mine Racer game from 2mb Solutions, and then I move on to drag out an old yet still majorly addictive and rather enjoyable title from the now abandoned Dan Z Games called Super Deekout to mess around with for a few minutes.
As usual, you can expect some epic failure as I attempt to play these games, as well as interaction with listeners and all around random discussion.

Episode 5: Scramble… to No Where?
Date: January 10, 2019
Description: **This stream is informal, and all in good fun. Anyone jokingly called out at the beginning is actually a friend and no one is being genuinely insulted on stream. Most people know this, but figured I’d include it **
Welcome to Episode 5! In this one, Sam, Alec, Carter and I demonstrate this fun new game I’m creating called Scramble. It’s a rather arcade style game, but it’s unique and has several different and interesting concepts. You won’t want to miss this one!

Date: December 27, 2018
Description: This is a special episode of the Steven D Podcast. Sam, Carter, Alec, and I are all hanging out at Sam’s house for the week.

Date: November 29, 2018
Description: Well, I think the title says it all! In this exciting and suspenseful episode, listen as I demonstrate an epic new game that Sam Tupy is working on! The game is called Constant motion, and is actually a series of several minigames that will have you jumping at every turn, cursing in frustration and anger, and your heart beating way too fast to be good.

Episode 2: Hell!
Date: November 15, 2018
Description: I, along with guest hosts Sam Tupy, Carter Temm, and Alec Olson, demonstrate 3 interesting, extremely difficult, but not yet released game concepts! The title says it all: listen as I try and fail miserably to out run things that try to kill me, dodge lethal obstacles, and of course… avoid receiving the obligatory curses – what would Hell be without them? To top it off, I get loads of discouragement from these idiots!

Date: November 1, 2018
Description: This is the first episode of the Steven D Podcast! It features myself, and guest host Baylee Alger, taking the game I created known as Oh Shit, and putting it through the grinder! I start out playing a regular round of the game, but end up messing up the mechanics so badly, that it turns into something that not even the best regular Oh Shit players would be able to play!
