func_podcast – Episode 5

// Reading Time: < 1 minute

I have to open with an apology here, Bradley had some audio problems, so the audio in this episode if a little rough.

Sorry about that.

Anyway, in this fifth episode, Bradley talks through his issues with the recent wave of game remakes and I talk a little about my latest game jam game, “The Interval”. Then we follow up with a discussion around the fall of survival horror, where Bradley theorises a potential Naughty Dog Silent Hill game. We close by discussing the shortcomings of boomer shooter marketing and the pressure to market on “juice”.

This episode was absolutely begging to have a custom video with game footage, but I didn’t think it was worth it due to the poor audio. Again, sorry about the quality on this one. I don’t blame anyone for giving it a skip! We’ll get it sorted next time.
