Helldivers is the latest game from Arrowhead Games and was their first game developed originally for PSN and is now making the move to the PC. While it may feel like their previous hit Magicka at first, there are a lot of new things out there in space.
I wanted to make a quick message as I know that everyone is going to be busy with family on Thursday and shopping on Friday. I’ll be taking the next few days off to relax for Thanksgiving. Have a great holiday and if you are in the giving mood, of course please consider checking out the Patreon campaign. While I won’t have any posts or podcasts this week, there will still be plenty of videos posted on the Youtube channel.
Video games have always been popular thanks to their accessible nature and being able to let someone enjoy something they wouldn’t otherwise be able to. Genres like the airplane simulator, grognard-level strategy games and racing Sims let people enjoy the closest abstracted play can get to reality.
On the flip side, many games deal with fantastic situations that we would never see in our lifetimes…unless an alien invasion is coming soon. With that said however, real life can intervene with playing video games and it’s important to understand how disabilities can have an impact on your game design and on game accessibility
This week on the cast, I spoke with Travis Baldree and Erich Schaefer from Double Damage Games to talk about Rebel Galaxy and their experience and lessons learned from the ARPG genre.
