    Welcome to the first episode of the new podcast from the Sword Chomp crew: Evoking the Sublime. After months of work and logistics, it has finally been launched. The aim of EtS is to offer an in-depth look at the history and creation of one video game per episode.

    This episode details the ideas behind What Remains of Edith Finch, one of Sword Chomp's favorite games of 2017. Shea, me, the host, was lucky enough to speak to the creative director of the game and of Giant Sparrow, Ian Dallas.
