It’s Wednesday, which means we’re upon another build stream day! (11am ET on Twitch and YouTube).

Morning Coffee Blog: Numbers Go Up

Morning Coffee Blog: Patterns


Generally speaking I try to keep these blogs on an upbeat tone, but today we’re going to talk about a little something that, as the kids say, “really grinds my gears”. In the end I hope it will provide insight.… Read the rest

One of our ideas for Pixels and Puppets is we’re taking a more contemplative approach, rather than just trying to be a nerd news firehose. None of us are journalists, we’re just ordinary folks, so we shouldn’t pretend we’re “covering” … Read the rest

So, about those Frankie Play streams…
