BitSummit 7 Burping Spirits

Ain’t no party like a BitSummit river party ’cause a BitSummit river party ends in tears. So, another BitSummit has come and gone and I saw some games and I have some thoughts. Thoughts and games. That is what we do here. Fresh games and Burpy thoughts. I didn’t really detect any distinct trends this […]

The ReBurpining 2019

Welcome, ladies and gentlemans to Burpy Fresh Dot Com. Cutting to the chase before I get into some more personal deals. This website has been mostly dead for the last few* months and I wish to make it slightly more alive. I have a couple of plans for that beginning with the Burpy Stream Show. […]

Seoul Indies – December Line Up

A belated and half-hearted Happy New Year’s to everyone. We’ve had a good break here, and by good, I mean it took me 3 weeks to pick up ourselves from the tear-soaked bathroom floor where my hopes and dreams have gone to die, to drag myself out to December’s Seoul Indies. Which kinda cheered me […]

Back to Japan – Otaru and Mega Night

TLDR: Japan is for drinking. While I can’t say this statement has been true for my whole life, or for even times as recent as 10 years ago, I do loves me some Japan. I think after moving out of the country, we needed a few years apart to grow and develop, and now that […]

GStar – Worth it? Probably not.

I finally decided to get off my lazy ass and go to GStar in Busan. Was it worth it? Kinda. Here’s the breakdown.   The Good     1. Busan Indie Connect (BIC) has a fairly large pity booth at the side of the event. I’m pretty sure the conversation went like this:  Busan Government […]

Underdev’d #3 – Learning Blender

Welcome back to Game Dev with the Underdev’d #3. We’ve come along way people. Burpy Fresh’s first game ever has been met with incredible critical approval. Three downloads! Admittedly, developing something that requires 4 PS2 controllers was likely not a good idea. Onwards and upwards! Fast forward a year. Nothing has happened. Yay! Basically, I’ve […]

Seoul Indies, October 2017

Another month has passed, and with that comes another Seoul Indies! Next month, I’ll be in Japan instead of indies, so let’s make this month count that much extra. Heh. Nah, I’m gonna half ass it like I always do. This week there were 4 presentations, two I hadn’t seen before. Daily Dungeon – 1506 – […]

Engare – Geometry, But Fun

Not to be confused with Geometry Butt Fun, out next year on the Nintendrix Switch.     I saw Engare this weekend on the Indie Game Developers Facebook group, and decided to give it a go, since it just released on Steam and was on sale. I’m a sucker for a discount. It’s a game […]

Humble Korean Mobile Bundle

The mainstream Korean mobile game scene contains a whole bunch of garbage. Like a planet of garbage. Mostly it’s just basically re-skins of Progress Quest, where you slowly grind levels so that you can see bigger numbers. I guess that’s mobile gaming in a nutshell world wide, but the current Korean scene seems pretty trash […]

Seoul Indies – September, 2017

Hey, so @curttheinvert and I went to Seoul Indies this month and they actually had games. Like 5 of them!

BIC Fest 2017 – The Best Fest

While all of you are galavanting around at TGS, the Burpy crew are enjoying a quiet weekend at home, nursing our wounds and sulking about how we’re not at TGS. It’s okay though, because we still have the memories of BIC Fest 2017 to get us through until BitSummit in May. It’s going to be […]

Wizard’s Table – Fiasco

A bit late to this particular party, but I finally got a tabletop group together to play Fiasco. Folks, it was pretty great. For those not in the know Fiasco is basically the Coen Brothers RPG. A bit different than my normal fantastic fare at the table, I mean, what’s the point of a game […]

Otaru – Lemon Sours & Games

Things are getting a little crazy in Burpyfreshia. I quit my job, and took another job doing social media work. Basically, I get paid to use Twitter and Facebook. It’s a living hell. I mean. I like Twitter and Facebook. I just don’t necessarily like everyone else on Twitter and Facebook. They sometimes send me […]

Seoul Indies – August, 2017

Seoul Indies is something that is worth more of our time. It’s a place to watch or give presentations on anything game related, a place to talk and play video games, and a place to drink cheap Korean beer. Most importantly, it’s a place to see if your idea is shit, or something you should […]

BitSummit 2017 – Best or Bestest?
