The home team talks game development and PowerPoint, the good ol’ days of Game Boy, and wild facts about the largest species in the deer family. Plus: Was that summer everyone was playing Pokémon GO the closest we’ll ever get to world peace?

Episode notes:

Pokémon GO is six years old (it makes us feel old, too). 

Check out NoobBoy, the Game Boy emulator. Need more nineties nostalgia? You can still play DOOM on almost anything.

What kind of game could you build with PowerPoint? Two game developers go head-to-head over 24 hours to show you: Watch the video.

Did you know a moose can dive 20 feet deep and swim faster than Michael Phelps? It’s true.

Today’s Lifeboat badge goes to user zvone for their answer to Error message “TypeError: descriptor ‘append’ requires a ‘list’ object but received a ‘dict'”.
