Episode #16 is now live!
Jon and Dirk are joined by Michael Tan, lead designer of War Stories, a new tabletop wargaming franchise that just launched on Kickstarter. Michael and Dirk talk about the experience of remotely designing a game together, and share many of the exciting and innovative features that help it stand out from other wargames.
When it comes to game design I typically work solo, so it was interesting hearing about a more collaborative process.
I haven’t played War Stories myself, the ideas Michael and Dirk have incorporated into it sound very promising. I especially love how they’re handling the map and movement, as it’s unlike anything I’ve heard of before. Innovation is always exciting!
