STAGE OF DEVELOPMENT is a series of documentary videos and podcasts produced by Flying Saucer Media, and created by Russ Pitts. The series features human stories about real people who make video games. The Stage of Development Podcast features expanded interviews with game makers about how they make games, why they makes games, and how making games has impacted their lives.

Phil Tibitoski is one of the members of Young Horses, creators of Octodad. I talked with Phil about the state of Young Horses’s new game, why following the surprise hit Octodad is stressful for the whole team, and how the young team has managed to stay creative and positive in light of current politics. Phil is one of my favorite humans, and a friend, and I love talking with him.
