    3-02: Narrative (ft. Xalavier Nelson Jr.)

    It's narratives that transform us. The narratives we create with each other shape our lives, help heal pain or inflict it, deepen connection or destroy it. Narratives are key.

    This week's episode: Narrative, featuring an interview with Narrative Director Xalavier Nelson Jr. He's worked on Hypnospace Outlaw and Can Androids Pray?, and is currently developing An Airport for Aliens Currently Run By Dogs. 

    For the Director's Cut, we discuss Overwatch and ludonarrative dissonance (there's a $1000 phrase) in Why is "The Last Bastion" Stuck in Eternal Deathmatches?

    Finally, we close with a game recommendation from Jenny Windom, talking a bit about how game mechanics in The Pedestrian shape her personal experiences.

    Podcast Extra: Interview with Rina Purdy (PAX South 2019)

    Podcast Extra: Interview with Rina Purdy (PAX South 2019)

     The Good Ship IGPC hasn’t quite fully returned from hiatus, but we’ve got some special bonus episodes for you in the meantime! These upcoming Intelligame Podcast extras vary in format, but tell important stories. Hope they get you excited for the return of the IGPC!



    -----



    CONTENT WARNING: This episode contains discussions of trauma, abuse, and mental health.



    Rina Purdy hitchhiked her way to PAX South 2019 to showcase her game, Floating Wonderland. A nomad partially by necessity, she found her way from Vancouver, BC to San Antonio, TX then flew to Spain almost directly after. Bubbly and good-natured, she’s kept working on her game even while dealing with homelessness and more. 



    During the interview, we talk about her life, her game, and her dream of making a dev studio out of a double-decker bus in London. We also talk about some of the resiliency she’s cultivated over the years, and the ways her struggles help her overcome adversity...including some that comes up directly during the interview.
