Yesterday I stumbled across a project on twitter that fascinated me so I figured that I would share it here. Handmade Hero is a quest to build a video game from scratch completely live streamed. Building from scratch is how I like to do everything, especially learning.

Handmade Hero streams live every weekday at 8PM PST1 and has an archive of all previous sessions on youtube. Don't worry, the project started on 17 Nov 2014 so there are only a handful of episodes currently in the backlog.

Go watch the trailer and preorder the game for full access to the source code.


  1. Pretty sure it means 'Whatever time zone Seattle is in' not strictly PST, but I just quoted from the website.
