For the second episode of Steve & Matts (Honestly, that's the best I got) we sat down and got deep in the Lang Zone. We interviewed Dave about Divekick. Find out why it isn't coming out around this week as planned, details on an upcoming demo, and challenges with Steam Greenlight a developer might face.

Want to see Divekick on PC? Well, you'll need to Greenlight it!

I'm gonna check it out.

And keeping on topic about the topic, but going slightly off topic into a tangent, I've come to the knee-jerk uninformed and uneducated conclusion that Greenlight is a massive clusterfuck. When an unfinished game based on YouTube personalities can get through, but a game that they're seriously considering or actually doing at EVO gets completely ignored and railroaded at every turn makes the whole process fucking infuriating.

Least that's what I get out of it. I've seen better arguments on why it's a massive bumbling sack of shit, so I'll just stick with my terrible "RAH RAH RAH THIS IS SHIT" rhetoric.

Dave Lang talks about some issues he has noticed about the service. So give the show a listen and hopefully you'll find that valuable. For me, it's some of the best insight I've heard from someone with experience in the business. Let me know what you think.

That was a really good interview. Dave seems real open about the process of making games.

"you get better, you get better, you get better, then you get worse, and start overthinking yourself" -Dave Lang

ahhhh....Mike Ross. (the classic)

On a serious note, great interview, its great to hear Dave go into a little more detail about problems with greenlight. Always enjoy some Divekick discussion.

Haha, during the EVO commentary, Lang actually remembered to call out Kessler for eating during the podcast. Totally put him on blast (on blasters?). It was hilarious.

That was a great interview. I'm crossing my fingers and hoping this makes it through Steam Greenlight, because I will play that crap out of some Divekick.

You got a link to that or can give me the full story to that?
