Welcome to Play Dead, the first and only podcast that looks exclusively at death in video games! Hosted by Gabby DaRienzo, Play Dead explores the different ways that death is used in video games and the meanings it has for both players and developers.
In this special end of the year episode of Play Dead, Gabby asks several game developers about their most memorable video game deaths, including Taylor Bai-Woo, Sagan Yee, Ksenia Eic, Tabby Rose, Robby Duguay, Alex Bull, Jonathan Levstein, Rosalind Chapman, Rosemary Brennan, and Dork Shelf Games Editor Eric Weiss. The answers range from NPC deaths, to game glitches, to digital reminders of deceased loved ones.
