Episode 11 - Interview with Nathan Hamley

Nathan Hamley drops by this week as we go on “Guard Duty” in the medieval town of Wrinkleworm and Nathan explains why it really isn’t a good idea to allow a “mysterious hooded stranger” past the gates. In this episode we take a (spoiler free) deep dive into his new game Guard Duty as we discuss:

- How Guard Duty went from being a hobby to a commercial project

- Why he decided to combine both Lord of the Rings and Blade Runner into one game

- How he aims to make a game to appeal to the early adventure game fans and modern gamers alike

- How he was successful in his Kickstarter and what he does to promote his game in an increasingly crowded market.

Plus much more!
