I had a great conversation with Malachi Rempen: screenwriter, traveler, and creator of the Itchy Feet web comic and travel card game. Malachi recently and successfully crowdfunded the Itchy Feet Travel card game. We covered some good ground talking about storytelling and the importance of having the end in mind, travel stories, marketing, the Kickstarter project he recently finished, cinema influences with the Coen Brothers, writing advice, and much more. Enjoy!

I hadn't played any video games in a long while and I'm glad I got back into it thanks to Thomas Brush's beautiful Pinstripe game. As I explain in the episode, I came across Pinstripe's Kickstarter crowdfunding campaign last year, really liked what I saw and participated in bringing the game project Thomas had already been working on by himself for several years to fruition. The game was released on Steam a few months ago and I played through it. I really enjoyed the design, style, storytelling, atmosphere, quite tough themes to approach, and the music. I reached out to Thomas and we had a great conversation about what it takes to create this kind of solo indie game project. We talked about Thomas' background in South Carolina, his creative influences, how he started designing games, and much more.

You can find Pinstripe on Steam, and if you have a console take note that it will be released on XBox and Playstation in just a few months. Thomas is now working on his next game: Once Upon a Coma.
