indiegames.PNGFirst off, I must again apologise for the lack of podcast last week - if you read the 'Missing Podcast' post, you'll know that it wasn't us being lazy, and heads were bashed against brick walls. With that out of the way, here is the latest recording, in which we talk to the most wonderful Mr. Andy Schatz, or 'the guy who made Monaco' as he is known around these parts.

We talked to the IGF award winner about his multiplayer heist game Monaco and what we can expect to see in the final version of the game, and Andy reads out several lines of script from the game's cutscenes. He also admits that he has a stolen whale in his bath, tells us plenty of stories about the history of the actual city-state of Monaco, and confronts Tim over the whole 'the guy who made Monaco' comment.

The usual listening options apply: You can jump just below the cut and listen to the podcast there (and also find links to everything we discussed), or you can head over here and download to it your personal computer. Are you an Apple fanboy? You make me sick, but you can still grab a copy from iTunes if that's your kind of thing (you sicko). Oh yeah, there's an RSS feed you can subscribe to as well. Enjoy!
