Launch Trajectories: Antler - Developing and Launching a Video Game
In this episode, we feature a startup company with Penn State Abington ties called Antler. Antler started out as a small podcast that reviewed indie games on steam. Over the years their videos and music gained more attention on popular platforms such as YouTube and Twitch. As live streamers they partnered up with multiple charity organizations and live stream teams to raise a combined total of 65 thousand dollars in charity for Children's Hospital of Philadelphia, Toys for Tots, Covid Relief, and much more.
The team at Antler gathered many skills from their previous experiences that led them to start up a video game development company. Antler currently has one game, Somni, released with over ten more planned for the future.
Guests: Dan Stepanski, PSU Abington (Penn State Abington - 2022), Owner, Art Director, Assistant Programmer and Level Designer for Antler, Shawn Stepanski, PSU Abington (Penn State Abington - 2012), Owner, Marketing Director, Social Media Manager, and Asset Acquisition for Antler, and Roberto de Mendonca, Owner, Music Director, Programmer, and Sound Artist for Antler.
