Play Dead: RIP Special Vol. 3

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 the third volume of our R.I.P. compilation episodes, Gabby speaks with Play Dead’s season 2 guests about their most memorable video game deaths, including Sam Coster (Crashlands), Klaus Lyngeled (Fe, Flipping Death), Matt Klimas (Grim Acres), and Sophia Park and Penelope Evans (LOCALHOST, Arc Symphony). You can also catch up on other Play Dead podcast guests’ RIP Specials here: Vol .1 and Vol. 2.
