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
This episode is sponsored by The
Spiel, a podcast about games and the people who love them.
On Who, What, Why? I discuss game design with those who make games and try to learn more about the game design process. Each episode I interview a designer, publisher, developer, artist, etc. of tabletop games such as card, board, or role playing. Some episodes discuss big ideas in design rather than individual games. I have both mainstream and independent developers as guests.
