    "if you were successful then you wouldn't be teaching" is an attitude that comes from a completely broken education system. "Those who cant do, teach" still permeates our culture because teaching is looked down upon as something less important, like the real work is being done by the rockstars while the little leagues go teach the new guys.

    Dad game developers. Man, I just discovered you guys on youtube, and I gotta say, as a father of four and hobbyist game developer (working with my oldest son on games), you guys discussing the family balance with your development is both helpful and heartwarming. It's very encouraging.

    To be honest, this is the first hour and a half of the interview/show on Clip-Share that I don't feel bored at all. It is just pure goodness to me as I am in the process of learning to make a game myself too.

    This was such a treat for me. My two favs just talking about game Dev and their journey. Thank you guys I loved this. I am now taking a look at my bank balance and seeing if I can afford the course which I so want to do. Thank you guys. I don't know why you guys don't work together bringing more into the course. You guys would make a wonderful team

    This is hands down one of the most useful and transparent conversations around game development and content creation I’ve seen in so long. Thank you so much for doing this guys.

    I see using assets as this. First they were made to be used. I have characters I sell because I dont plan on using them but I hope someone does. So as a creator I think we can all agree, we make our stuff to be used,

    David is probably one of the most inspiring figures to me right now in the indie industry. I relate to him so much and his situation, and it's awesome to hear his story and how he goes about game dev.
