Kill Shakespeare is a comic series created by Anthony Del Col and Conor McCreery. In 2014 IDW published a game of the same name based on the comic series. The comic story follows the adventures of some of the bard's most famous characters as they search for the bard himself. Some characters have only good intentions (Juliet, Hamlet, Othello, etc) while others have evil ones (Richard III and Lady MacBeth). The game puts the players in the world of the comic. The game is semi-cooperative. The players must work together to defeat Richard and Lady MacBeth, but they don't want each to get the most glory.

Our discussion focused on Anthony as one of the license holders of an intellectual property that became a game. We discussed where the idea for the game came from, how much involvement Anthony and Conor had, and what expectations Anthony had for the game. Since this episode focused on a Shakespearean topic, we geeked out over the bard for a little bit.
