About One Cool Thing
One Cool Thing is a podcast speaking with people in and around videogames about One Cool Thing not from games which is really fascinating them at the moment. One of the founding principles of Die Gute Fabrik is interdisciplinarity - collaborating with people from other art forms to bring fresh ideas to video games. And that’s also what’s at the heart of this podcast series: what not from games is shaping how people think about making games right now?
About This Episode
In episode 9 we meet Moo Yu who chats with Hannah Nicklin about Legally Blonde.
Moo is a gameplay programmer with an extremely distinguished two decade long career. He’s worked on larger scale games like LittleBigPlanet, Ratchet and Clank before moving on to smaller scale indie games. Moo was the lead, and indeed only programmer on the super cool Knights and Bikes. His current game is being made under the name of Team Artichoke which hints at his motto ‘games with a little heart’.
