This is the first of 2 APs we recorded with the Meme Team. There was a plan to do more; but it became untenable. It’s still great content and I think you’ll all love it.
The Meme Team are a First In Gatecrashing team. The travel through the Fissure Gate to new worlds in order to see if it’s safe for others to follow. The Meme Team are part of the London Calling Collective a group of anarchists that all love first in missions. We hope you enjoy this bonkers episode.
Ben is a Maltese-Australian game designer with a background in video game design; but he also makes RPGs. We had him on to talk about his history, his process, and some of his games. It was a blast and we can’t wait to play Ben’s stuff.
If you’d like to see more from Ben, he’s provided us with a list of links!

[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…)
This is the session Zero and session One of our short Monsterhearts game. The session zero includes discussions of what elements we want to look at, what themes we want to deal with, and what we want to avoid. We talk about racism, sexism, and violence. We discuss safety tools.
Session One begins on in a dorm room, in a boys only boarding school, on an island. And the actually recording starts at 1h and 50m.
This week we explore the difficulties of fixing someone else’s mistakes, difference of morality, family stress, and the complexity of building a new world.
This is Mars Colony, a two person RPG by Tim C Koppang.
This episode was recorded in a rather resonant space, but shouldn’t be a problem to listen to. We hope you enjoy listening to this Two Person RPG.
