Interview with DC, designer of Mutants in the Night


[CONTENT WARNING: There is a brief mention of the struggles of dealing with depression, anxiety, and suicidal thoughts in this episode.]

This week we interviewed an up and coming Game Designer from the States; DC.
DC is working on an adaptation of Blades In The Dark, called Mutants In The Night. It’s got some really interesting themes of community. And looks at many of the experiences of non dominant social groups; with a focus on African American, and Queer communities.

We also talked about DC’s game dev origin story, and the intersection of Martial Arts and Rap music. (more…)
