A podcast about topics in game design featuring the many people who come together to make games possible.

Aug 15, 2022

Ben Nielson (@BanditCampGames), designer of Wicked Ones RPG and head of Bandit Camp publishing, joined me to discuss his game with its latest Kickstarter for both a full print run and an expansion called Undead Awakening. This game puts you in control of the monsters of the dungeon rather than the heroes. We discussed a number of topics such as how Ben, who lives in Japan, has funded his RPG work so far, how a designer builds on other RPG systems such as Powered By the Apocalypse and Forged in the Dark, and how story games put the players in the driver's seat (and why that's important).
