Young game designers with Elizabeth Orji-Smith Talking Simulator

    • Video Games

In 2019, Elizabeth Orji-Smith was one of the winners of that year’s BAFTA Young Game Designers competition for their game concept Creatively Bankrupt, an action RPG that uses heists to explore topics like unionisation in creative industries. In this episode, they tell Jordan where they got the idea for the game, what they’re up to now, and what they want from the future.
The 2021 BAFTA Young Game Designers competition is open for entries until March 2021. Sadly, a few days before this episode was released, BAFTA shared the news that a previous winner, Lucy-Jack Reynolds, died in March 2020. In her memory, book publisher Muswell Press has launched a competition for entries to a new anthology called Queer Life, Queer Love. Please consider supporting young trans people.
The Beak, Feather, & Bone supplement Tail, Scale, & Bone, which Elizabeth illustrated, is available on itch.io - all proceeds are being donated to the Bukit Bail Fund of Pittsburgh.
The actual play podcast that provided some of the inspiration for Creatively Bankrupt is Friends at the Table.
