For this cast, I spoke with Sean and Marina who are the team behind Anodyne and the upcoming sequel Anodyne 2 about design. We started with how the duo met and first developed Anodyne and then talked about everyone’s thoughts on design. For the final part of the cast we spoke more about what’s coming with Anodyne 2.
Toejam and Earl Back in the Groove was a return to the classic franchise by series’ creator Greg Johnson after a successful kickstarter. With the game out, it is a blast from the past, but I feel it may not go far enough to bring in da funk.
For this perceptive podcast we spoke with Farbs of Blue Manchu Games about how the company got started with Card Hunter, and then spent a lot of time talking about Void Bastards. We spoke about the general design, the structure, and a whole discussion on rogue-like gameplay.
