Humans of Gaming 132 | PAX Unplugged 2018 Interviews

SHOW NOTES

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
