Nice. Actually, this podcast is priceless.
I'm guessing new guys will not get this, as in comprehend and intuitively see what it all means. Except for the new guys that have some experience on other non-game projects.
I thought this is like handling kids! They could get too excited, too full of life, and then do and want everything now, then to your amazement they're in the back seat fast asleep just 200 meters from the house.
What Lavzz said about losing interest is something else I think, but yeah, the cast touched about preparing to plunge into a project and deciding whether or not a project is worth doing without having spend much just to find figure it out. At least for me, this was very much appreciated.
It seemed to me like it was an advice how to be efficient and have self-control and not get too impulsive.
After listening to the cast, I thought this isn't for beginners but for the intermediate ones. Ones with some experience like myself. Some. Like one or two.
Can I make a request for a topic for the next podcast? About feedback, the community, the developer, and how to avoid evil hammers and be able to digest good hammers. Something like that.
