About

How Indie Games Get Made is a listener-supported, ad-free narrative nonfiction podcast that demystifies how independent developers make video games with limited resources. The show is created by Dylan Martin and Stephanie MacDonald, who previously made BosBattle, an interview show about Boston's video game industry.

Stay up-to-date with the latest episodes here: indiegamescast.com.

Our goal is to make a unique, aurally dynamic and compelling storytelling experience that puts a spotlight on indie developers who make games with limited resources. Every month, we will release a new developer story, and it will be accompanied by bonus interviews and behind-the-scenes content that will only be accessible by backing our Patreon page.

How Indie Games Get Made is a production-intensive podcast, as it requires multiple hours to conduct interviews alone. Writing the story, recording the narration and editing the episode takes many more hours. We both have day jobs, so we are doing all of this in our spare time, at night and on weekends. It's something that Dylan and Stephanie have wanted to do for years.

We hope this can become a sustainable project that will eventually lead to a higher frequency of episodes and more content. But for that to happen, we will require the support of you, our listeners, whether it's $5, $10 a month or whatever amount you are comfortable with.

We think experiences are best when they are unencumbered by ads, so we will be making no attempts to sell ads or join an ad network, which is another reason your support is important. But we know we're in the middle of an economic recession and not everyone is in a position to donate, so if you would like to support our podcast but lack the funds, you can help by sharing the podcast with your friends and by rating and reviewing the show on Apple Podcasts.
