Humans of Gaming 139 | Jay Tholen of Hypnospace Outlaw on Developing Games as a Christian


About This Episode

Jay Tholen of Hypnospace Outlaw and Dropsy returns to the show to join Drew and Chris live from Germany! The first half of the show is a deep dive into the nostalgia of the internet from the 90’s when terms like Netscape Navigator, GeoCities, Prodigy, and bad MIDI music dominated the 56k modems those of us over 28 used to connect with each other. The later half is filled with a discussion of where Jay has been since his first appearance on the show and how his Christian faith influences his work.
