Episode 4 - Interview with Georg Hobmeier

In this episode Georg Hobmeier, founder of Causa Creations, speaks about starting his company and about his early games. We then discuss his latest game Path Out, “an autobiographical adventure game that allows the players to replay the journey of Abdullah Karam, a young Syrian artist that escaped the civil war in 2014. Camouflaged as a Japanese RPG, Path Out is a tale full of surprises, challenges and paradoxical humor, giving insight in this real-life adventure, on which Abdullah comments through youtube-style videos in the game.” In this episode Georg talks about:

- his company and their early games and what he has learned from them

- How he met Abdullah and why they decided to make an adventure game about his escape from Syria

- Why they included Abdullah in the game with youtube style videos

- His future plans and what we can expect from Causa Creations in the future.

Plus I discuss the latest adventure game news including a new studio founded by previous Telltale employees, Aggies awards for 2018 and a free game you won’t want to miss.
