The Several Journeys of Remus is a series of point and click adventure games. You take on the persona of Remus and his side kick Liam in a surreal magical world. You must point and click your way to the end of the story in true Lucas Arts fashion.
We heavily discuss feedback with Jay. Adventure games are a genre where balancing feedback is of utmost importance. Too much and the key aesthetic of challenge disappears, too little and frustration sets in. We ask Jay about how he tackles this key design challenge.
This episode is sponsored by The Spiel, a podcast about games and the people who love them.
On Who, What, Why? we discuss game design with game designers and try to learn more about the game design process from the people who design games. Each episode we interview a designer of card games, board games, role playing games, or video games. We have both mainstream and independent developers as guests.
