On Weirdness and Geek Culture, with Jake Kazdal

ETAO Podcast, Episode 01.

 
Game developer and graphic artist Jake Kazdal, who you might know from his work on Rez and Space Channel 5 Part 2, joins us for our inaugural podcast. He discusses the finer points of his studio’s first release, Skulls of the Shogun, and shares the (crazily ambitious) plan for their next game, a roguelike-alike space shooter called Galak-Z: The Dimensional.

Plus, I talk about cultural consensus (and opting out of it), and the role of so-called “geek culture” in a world where even the mainstream loves superheroes and dragons and ice zombies and whatnot.
