The Design of the Dream Machine

For this cast, I sat down with Anders Gustafsson from Cockroach Inc. who made the stop motion adventure game The Dream Machine. We spoke about adventure game design and what it was like to design a literally handmade adventure.

Note: spoilers began around the hour mark for the cast.

We started introductions and how Anders got started with adventure game design. We spoke about the origins of the Dream Machine and the process of both designing the game and constructing it. Anders had a lot to say about puzzle design in both the Dream Machine and in the genre as a whole, and we hit a variety of topics.
