The PopCast, Episode 5: The Rise and Fall of Pig Up!


PopCap — a company that makes awesome games that everyone loves. Except for sometimes when that doesn’t happen. While our track record is something that speaks for itself, and something that we’re immensely proud of, not everything goes exactly as planned, or hoped for.

In this illuminating and enlightening episode of The PopCast, Jeff Green and Joey Trimmer welcome longtime PopCap veterans — producer Isaac Aubrey and writer Stephen Notley — for an in-depth, post-mortem look at Pig Up!, a game that flew gloriously up into the sky and then crashed into a pile of pig mush in the span of just a few months. We look at the whats, whys, and wherefores, sharing some tears and laughs along the way.

Listen with someone you love.
