---Update---
I don't know when the episode will air (Read the last few posts)
------------


The other week a guy named Alex interviewed me for a segment on the Australian TV show, Good Game. An ABC crew setup the interview in my room.

There is going to be a segment on 'Video Game Addiction' on the show this week, and I am basically giving a developer's perspective on how I made Faerie Solitaire compelling to play. (FS is "That game I made").

Embarrassment and lols are sure to ensue, so if you'd like to watch me on TV, the episode airs on ABC2 at 8:30pm on Monday the 21st of June.

For those of you not in Australia, or if you want to watch me again and again, you will be able to view the episode on the web at:
http://www.abc.net.au/tv/goodgame/
(Once it has aired on TV.)

For most of you, I suspect this will be the first time you've see my face

Hey, congratulations Andy!

I've never seen you but with "Assault" being in your username I've always imagined you to look like the heavy weapons guy from Team Fortress. Anything less and I'll be disappointed!

Nice, looking forward to it. I personally don't really like the show though, especially since that guy left and got replaced.

I cleaned it up good! I have a fairly large room so I made most of it empty besides my desk and bed. In the shots that they took it's mainly me with my computer in the background.

Wish I was in Australia right now; it's always more fun to watch things live. Not to mention, it'd almost be winter over there!

Will definitely watch on the web. Can't wait till, and best of luck on the interview!

I've never actually watched Good Game. Don't really watch TV though. Didn't you appear on it like last year, Andy?

I'll try to catch it but tight schedule, so I might not, lol.

Faerie Solitaire was reviewed on there last year by their hosts, but I wasn't on there. It's okay if you can't watch it on TV, but you can check out the episode on the net afterwards if you want.

Lol, I find it amusing how many girls comment on that Facebook event invitation thing. Who says game making doesn't attract girls?

Um, thanks Adam?

Unfortunately, the segment has been moved to another episode.

I just got an email saying that they haven't finished editing the other interviews in the segment, so it won't be on this week. I'm not sure if it will be on next week or the week after, but I'll repost on this thread when it is up.

Sorry about this guys! I hope you didn't have a bag of popcorn ready. Thanks for the interest.

Hey! It must be nice to append original posts with more information. That would be a nice feature to have available to everyone in topics they've started.

You're right. I didn't even think about that. Maybe it will be an option soon

I've just watched tonight's episode and it looks like it's not on so I'm going to go sit in a corner and pretend to not be completely embarrassed. I have no idea when it's going to be on TV :/

I guess I'll just post a link to the episiode in this thread when it finally does air and perhaps OMC can do a news post on it.

Sorry for the mega inconvenience.

I wouldn't be embarrassed - the world of TV land and its editors make the most baffling choices sometimes. What's the role of the person who keeps getting back to you, telling you when you'll be on?

 
It'll all blow over.

That person is the series producer So she's at the high end. I've spoken to her on the phone a few times, but not recently. I might email her again next week.

Dude, you made me watch that God-Aweful show for nothing.
My respect for you has diminished 30 points.

Next time watch the episode first and if it's there then and only then should you tell the world you're on tv.

And my respect for you has diminished 50 points after reading your reaction, when I clearly said:
1. I did watch the episode and I won't be on.
2. I'm sorry that I won't be on.

I don't have any control over what they put on TV. All I know is what they've told me and it's not really my fault if what they tell me is wrong. All I can do is pass on the information to the best of my ability.

+100 respect points to Boothman!
