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 […]

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 – […]

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 […]

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 […]

Hey, so @curttheinvert and I went to Seoul Indies this month and they actually had games. Like 5 of them! I forgot to bring my camera, but I’ll scavenge some stuff of the Internet.   Her Knights – Byulbaram     First up was Byulbaram, the godfather of Korean indie, featuring 그녀의 기시단 (Her Knights) in […]

BICFest 2017 went down in Busan a couple weekends ago and your friendly neighborhood wizard* caught a dimensional portal down there to see what the fuss was about. BICFest is Korea’s premier indie game festival going into it’s third year. One-hundred twenty odd games were showcased, along with talks by industry professionals, indie eSport competitions […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 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 […]

Holy crap it’s been a hell of a week. Work’s been blowing up, it looks like North Korea wants to blow up the world like just a little bit more now, and oh yeah, and BitSummit happened! The Burpy Crew (TM?) just got back from Kyoto, and boy are our thumbs tired! Hahaha! I kid, […]

As alluded to in the last Game Dev with the Underdev’d, here at Burpy Fresh, we love writing about games, but we also love making them. We’re proud to announce the alpha version of our very first game, Controller Clash. Now available on itch.io for Mac. (Windows etc coming soon, we had to rush to […]

Did up  BitSummit 2016 with my boy Doug last weekend. Had a good time talking to Indie Game folks and playing their games. He’ll post more picture as he is good at that. My picture are all blurry and make BitSummit look like more of a drugged up rave than it was. Here are some brief […]

I’m going to be frank. I’m shit at making awesome things. Or rather, I’m really good at making a lot of slightly-better-than-mediocre things. Jack of some trades, master of (break out laughing here). But this is not another exercise in getting off on self-deprecation.* What I’m going to introduce today is basically the culmination of what I’ve learned […]

Speak Japanese and English? Interested in video games, especially indie video games? Want a good way to put those Japanese skills to good use? Or maybe do you want to really find out how terrible your Japanese has become since you’ve left Japan 12 years ago with a bonus crushing reminder of how you’ve how […]
