💰 The Money Episode

MONEY! Now that you're awake, let's discuss UI, "game shells", and yeah, money!
The MONEY Episode: Make the Game with Matt Hackett

Let's talk about money! Now that I have your attention, here's some other nerd stuff we're gonna tackle:

  1. 🖥️ Why user interface is critical for a successful game
  2. 🦀 How a "game shell" can catapult your games forward
  3. 💰 Money (how much my book has made, coaching?, and finding a publisher)

🎧 Listen to the podcast

I almost called it Why User Interface is Critical but it's hard to compete with "Money".
