Dave Gilbert drops by in episode 3 to talk about his illustrious career and his award winning games, including The Shivah, the Blackwell series and Unavowed. For those who don’t know, Dave Gilbert started making adventure games commercially 13 years ago and has since gone on to be the “God of adventure games”. Blackwell Epiphany won “Adventure Game of the Year” at adventuregamers.com and Unavowed was one of the ten best reviewed PC games of 2018 and has been nominated for an IGF award for Best narrative.
