This is a show about videogames, the people who play them and the people who make them. Each episode, 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 & games that have soothed wounds. Checkpoints!
My guest on today's episode is the wonderful Nina Freeman, currently working on Tacoma at The Fullbright Company, Nina's previous games include Cibele and the IGF and Indiecade finalist How Do You Do It?
We talk her life long love of Final Fantasy X-2, the absurdity of playing Sims with no context, how cities make scenes, the Fullbright videogame mixtape, poetry vs. coding, how to quit Final Fantasy Online for real this time and why video games (mostly) suck at sex.
"You have to use your hands? That's like a baby's toy."
