A failed startup. An internet reality show. A major art project coming to an end. These were among the circumstances that led professional cartoonist Abby Howard and entrepreneur Tony Arias to embark on making a video game for their first time. This is the story of Black Tabby Games and the creation of Scarlet Hollow.
How Indie Games Get Made is a narrative nonfiction podcast that demystifies how independent developers make video games with limited resources. Many thanks to listeners of BosBattle, the previous podcast that occupied this feed, for sticking around.
