Greetings fellow Climbers! In this episode, I speak with Dennis Debro about his first homebrew game, Climber 5! We also talk about his Pac-Man 4K homebrew and much of the work he's done helping other homebrewers. It was a great conversation and I am grateful to Dennis for talking with me.
Next up will be Fireball by Starpath, another paddle game, yay! If you have any thoughts on this game, please send them to me by end of day June 10th at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Don Croswhite's Jungle Ferg design will be available on TeePublic starting tomorrow, May 31st, at 8 am. You will be able to buy shirts, Coffee mugs, and stickers at a discounted price until June 3rd at 8 am. Please support Don, he does great work!
Thank you so much for listening.
