Episode 40 – Cadets, Cards and Caves!

It’s been a little while (thanks to being busy with Ace of Spiesdo go and back it!) but it’s time for a brand new episode!

This one brings three interviews straight to your door! First up, Brian and Geoff Engelstein join me to discuss their new project Space Cadets. A co-op game that sounds like it’ll be a barrel of laughs, they’re also planning a live version before Stronghold Games release it for Essen 2012. Max Tempkin from Cards Against Humanity comes up next to talk about the incredible level of success that their game has attained – after reprints aplenty, they’re now planning on producing international editions… but how will they go about it? Finally, Arthur O’Dwyer discusses the perils of taking classic 70s interactive fiction “Adventure” and transforming it into a game for the tabletop: Colossal Cave.

As always, thanks for listening – and now… bring on the links!
