Humans of Gaming 132 | PAX Unplugged 2018 Interviews

Drew visits PAX Unplugged to walk the floor and interview board game developers who are developing experiences that push the medium into new areas.

Drew interviews 5 developers who are exploring these possibilities as well as what they hope people take away from their projects and why they make the games you play.

This week’s guests are:

  • Jonathan Gilmour of Dinosaur Island – Pandasaurus
  • James Ernest of Cheapass Games – Island of Dr. Lucky
  • Liz Roche of Gather Round Games – Someone Has Died
  • Chris Batarlis of Everything Epic – Big Trouble in Little China
