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 week’s episode, Gabby is joined by Benjamin Rivers, the independent game developer behind Home and the upcoming Alone With You. They talk about traditional death mechanics, common death tropes in horror games, and how Ben is using death in his own games.
The music used in this episode is from Home and Alone With You. Both soundtracks are written and composed by Ivor Stines.
