The TOG Games Industry Podcast #2 has been released!

A few friends at work and I like the food at a local bar. We go there fairly often for lunch, have a quiet pint and wind down for a bit. As such, we tend to know most of the staff, and we assume they recognise us.

Last week, we got a bit creative with the left-overs. It started with me making a square out of the left over chips, then eyes were added. From there, everyone got involved and what resulted can best be described as, well, a masterpiece of "improvisational organic expressionism...

When filters are Evil
