end of each episode, in this case it's more appropriate to say it
as we commence.
We're joined by Dave Neale, researcher in play and psychology,
writer and game designer. Dave is responsible for the the
game Sherlock Holmes Consulting Detective: The
Baker Street Irregulars.
In our wide-ranging conversation, we talk about the series of
Sherlock Holmes Consulting Detective games, how one goes about
creating a game, the difference between playing games as a child
and as an adult, the common psychology behind storytelling and game
design, and much more.
We have a special announcement about our Patreon/Paypal
supporter community and we discuss what's ahead.
You'll want to see if you can test your knowledge with
the Canonical Couplet: we give you two lines
of poetry that describe one of stories, and you name it. The winner
will receive a copy of the game Sherlock Holmes Consulting Detective: The Baker
Street Irregulars. Entries are due by 11:59 pm EDT on
December 14, 2020.
