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 Alexis Kennedy, the founder and director of Failbetter Games. They talk about how death is used in Sunless Sea and Fallen London, as well as Zubmariner (the first expansion for Sunless Sea) and Failbetter’s upcoming game Dandelion.
The music used in this episode is from the games Sunless Sea and Fallen London, both of which were composed by Mickymar Productions. You can listen to both of these soundtracks at failbettergames.bandcamp.com and check out more of Mickymar Production’s work at http://www.mickymar.com/
