And now it's time for another interview. This time it's with someone I've known in the industry for a while now and that is Jamie Johnson from Holy Grail games.
I know a bit about Jamie through our encounters in the past but I wanted to delve a little deeper into what makes Jamie, Jamie. So I put it through the Quantum Quiz to find out what things he would change if he was Sam Beckett in the Quantum Leap TV series.
Warning; this video contains two nuts and some adult language
Jamie also talks about his current project which is running on Kickstarter at the moment, called Titan. Titan is a network construction game set in the distant future, in which you play as employees of Stardrill, an interstellar mining corporation. Stardrill has acquired the mining rights to Saturn’s largest moon – Titan - and is sending in a team to strip it of its resources.
Earn Credits during the game by placing and upgrading Extraction plants, completing Stardrill’s special Objectives, and fulfilling Planetary Orders.
At the end of the game, you’ll score Credits depending on the contents of your hold! The more Deuterium you have, the better, as long as it hasn’t been contaminated…
The Employee with the most Credits at the end of the game becomes Stardrill Employee of the Month!
Watch the video and check out the Kickstarter which is running right as I type this.
Breaking into something new...Interviews.
Well not entirely true. If you have ever watched one of my Burky & Badger Board Game Babble podcasts (or technically listened to it), it you would know so that occasionally we have special guests on the show. And we interview them in a fun game show style. So I've decided to tweak this format into something that I can do on my own.
This is the first of which I hope many such interviews which I tested live on Facebook.My guest, designer David Gerrard from Junk Spirit Games offered to be my guinea pig for the show. And this is that show show where we get to know David and talk about the games he's designed, like Battle of the Bards.
I've basically taking the principals of the TV show Quantum Leap. Placing my guest in the roll all of Sam Beckett, who is uncontrollably being transported into the bodies of people throughout history. Having to make decisions for them to direct the history into a good and positive direction. But in our scenario, our Sam Beckett has control of who they jump into. Which can lead to some interesting and funny stories from the personal life of my guests.
What do you think of this format? Should be something to watch on Twitch or YouTube? And what guests would you like me to find out more about? Lights and comments and let me know.
