Episode 39 – An Episode You Can’t Refuse

Time for another episode, and this one’s another Triple Threat!

First up, I get to speak with Gary Weis, the Chief Technical Officer at iOS developer Playdek. They’re really making a push to get quality games onto your iPhone and iPad and are already responsible for the excellent conversions of Ascension: Chronicle of the Godslayer and Food Fight. With upcoming versions of Nightfall and Agricola on the way, we talk about how you transfer something from a tabletop to the palm of your hand and still make it fun. After that, Jump Gate designer Matt Worden joins me to discuss how he managed to handcraft a game that ended up becoming Games Magazine’s GOTY in 2011, as well as his plans for the future.

Finally, the devious duo of Steve “Voice of Ameritrash” Avery and Tom “Dice Tower” Vasel come along to discuss their forthcoming game Capo. Players who enjoy taking their opponents down a few steps will love this one as there’s plenty of opportunity to screw them over… but I’ll let the guys tell you all about it.
