SpellCheck Episode 4: Zak Smith Talks About Demon City (and other stuff…)
September 22, 2018
As promised, here’s the first episode of the new SpellCheck!
From Vornheim and Red and Pleasant Land through to his most recent efforts (Demon City and Frostbitten and Mutilated, both of which we discuss in this episode) game designer and artist Zak Smith confronts and changes how we think about roleplaying games and the intersection of rules, information design, and aesthetics. So clearly we needed to have a chat with him at some point!
Zak was kind enough to let us pick his brain as the Demon City Kickstarter was winding down several weeks ago. Apologies to Zak for not getting this out sooner!
