Gameroom Junkies #54: The Challenge of Coding and Creating Custom Games

Reading Time: 2 minutes

Gameroom Junkies Podcast Episode 54

We’re back with another great episode of the Gameroom Junkies Podcast featuring a fantastic panel from the Southern-Fried Gameroom Expo. Patrick is out sick this episode, so our good friend Bryan is filling in as co-host. After some brief updates we dive into an overdue “console corner” segment for some talk about Rocket League, my confusion over Bayonetta, and more. After that we answer some listener questions about our thoughts on the new Guitar Hero versus Rock Band 4 this fall and our picks for the greatest shots in pinball.

We close out our show with the audio from the SFGE panel “Coding and Creating: The Challenge of Creating Custom Games.” The panelists all have extensive experience creating custom games and overcoming obstacles. Speakers include Paul Kiefert (Python’s Pinball Circus), Gerry Stellenberg (P3 Pinball Platform), Scott Hale (Hale Games), and Jimmy Lipham (Demolition Man 2000). Discussion topics include first steps, programming tools of choice, and the inspiration for creating custom games, among others.

If you need some content in between our podcasts, be sure to check out our YouTube channel where we just released our first “breakdown” video where we dive into all then ins and outs of the classic Starship Troopers pinball machine.
