In the world of video games, you are likely familiar with companies that make & publish games such as Electronic Arts (EA Games), Rockstar Games, Infinity Ward and Treyarch (who make the Call of Duty games).
But in St. Louis there are actually a number of video game developers who make some pretty fun games that nearly anyone can just pick up, play and enjoy. On this episode, I am talking with a trio of developers from a local STL company called Happy Badgers.
Have a listen as I talk with Ben Triola, Dana Huth and Joey Paniello of Happy Badgers about a variety of topics including walking down memory lane to find out what was it about video games that attracted them to gaming in the first place, and why they decided to create their own games including their first console game which will be available on the Playstation 4 called Smuggle Craft.
A very fun discussion that I am sure you will enjoy!
To keep up with the crew at Happy Badgers, you can do so the following ways:

St. Louis “Did You Know?” bits
- Ulysses S.

- When the Beatles played their concert in St. Louis in August 1966, they were the first performers to pay a city earnings tax
