The podcast returns once again! This time around, I’m joined by some of the finest gentlemen that games have to offer. First up, Don Lloyd from Knight Works has been working on games for years and has finally managed to get his first major project up and running thanks to the magic of Kickstarter. Dark Horse is half resource management and half dice placement, combining some interesting elements to make a very entertaining looking game. We discuss the perils and pitfalls of crowd-funding, and the long road to getting Dark Horse out there into the hands of gamers. I’m then very pleased to say that the gentlemen from The Official New Internet Sensation that is Shut Up & Sit Down join me. Quinns and Paul tag along to talk about their fantastic new show and what on earth possesses them to create the damn thing. If you’ve not seen their videos, I heartily recommend that you have a look!
Also, in the show I mention donations – and seriously, if you’ve ever considered donating anything to the show, it would be greatly appreciated. I’m putting everything together to create a bunch of special episodes that will come straight from the huge Essen Games Fair, SPIEL ’11 in October – there’ll be interviews aplenty and more reviews than you can shake a stick at. However, as money is crazy tight at the moment (I lost my job a couple of weeks back – boooo) even the tiniest donation helps. HOWEVER, do NOT feel guilted into it! The show and site will remain resolutely free until the end of time – I do it because I love it, not to earn millions.
