We heard about an awesome game being made on Kickstarter recently, and we just had to talk to the designer.
Fraser Simons is the creator of Hack The Planet; a cyberpunk, climate fiction, Blades Hack. He took the time out of his morning to chat with us about his cool new project.
We’re very excited to see Hack The Planet get released, for whole bunch of reasons. Including, the fact that some Australian writers are contributing to it!
We hope that you enjoy the interview, and please check out the Kickstarter. (more…)
Matthew Corrin and Morgan Lean have a kickstarter running right now for their new game, Bodycount. Bodycount is a hyperviolent cyberpunk roleplaying game, with a focus on dealing harm to anyone that stands in your way.
We sat down with Matt to have a chat about the game, what spurred it’s creation, and what influenced the designers.
We had Vee and Hayley on the show to talk to us about their new Jane Austen RPG, Good Society. It’s got some really interesting setup mechanics that help you tailor the game to your groups style.
It was a pleasure catching up with them again. If you’d like to talk to them about all they have going on, why not head to Ettin Con? Vee and Hayley will be there running games. (more…)
This week we take a short break from Arcus to have a chat with Hamish about his game The Sprawl; a mission focused cyberpunk heist game.
Well also talk about game design competitions, cyber-fantasy, and some of Hamish’s upcoming projects. (more…)
This week we’re taking a short break from Arcus to bring you another interview with a game designer.
