This is a show about videogames, the people who play them and the people who make them. Each week, a guest on the show talks about the games that have shaped their life in one way or another. Games that have inspired them, games that forged connections with others and games that have soothed wounds. Checkpoints!
Today's guest is Sean Vanaman. award winning game designer, one of the founders of Campo Santo and a host of Idle Thumbs. He also wishes he was a little bit taller. He wishes he was a baller.
We talk about Campo Santo's upcoming Firewatch of course, and about the development of the Walking Dead series for Telltale Games. Along the way we discuss trust, lore vs. history, Half Life, Full Throttle, Portal, Bioshock and Safari Hunt. Videogames.
