We're joined by George Buckenham this episode, to walk us through his article "How to make your first videogame".

From Flash to Stencyl (by way of Microsoft 3D Movie Maker) George is convinced that anyone can set out to make a game, and so inspirational were his words that Ben set out to build one.

Also dicussed this episode - EA's indie bundle, Day Z and more.

This episode of 99 Coins we're joined by Giant Bomb's Patrick Klepek, Strongman Games' Erlend Grefsrud and freelance writer Cara Ellison (who we're very glad to have joining the podcast team)

The beginning of the year sees the Games Developer Conference, Indie Games Festival and PAX East take place. It's a busy time for the games industry and indie games continue to steal the spotlight. Cara was brave enough to take the Travel Mic over to San Francisco for GDC, and this week we'll hear her interview with Tim Rogers as he talks about his move from writing about games to making them.

Patrick tells us about the accidental beginnings of the MolyJam, a game jam based on the tweets of the Peter Molyneux parody twitter account @molydeux, and Erlend weighs in on the hows and whys of developing games.

We would love to hear your thoughts on Patrick's closing question - how do you feel about the term 'indie'. Does it lower expectations, is it disingenuous and too broad a term? Is there another term we should be using?

Let us know via @99 Coins or email 99Coins@bbc.com and we'll read through your responses in the next episode.
