Josh Heath High Level Games Interview

Humans of Gaming 150 | Josh Heath of High Level Games


About This Episode

Using games to have conversations about topics is not a new concept but Josh Heath of High Level Games is looking at using a different medium: pen and paper role playing games. Using a character in a game he played for years to be something he wasn’t in real life gave him the inspiration to create a 10 year plan for his life and how to get to where he is now. Using the table top format of games to help people have conversations about sensitive topics from today’s issues is part of the idea behind High Level Games.
