On this most esteemed episode of Sky Pirate Radio, we brush noses with Industry Legend Sid Meier* before getting busy whipping up a storm in Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night and Whipseey and the Lost Atlas, thieve the lands of WoW Classic and SteamWorld Heist, and get our hands around Remedy’s chuggin’-but-charmin’ Control. The boys cap things off answering a long overdue question, listing off some of their favourite game design books that can turn YOU into a Game Making Super Star! Lastly, we keep you abreast of progress on both our work-in-progress cowboy game and the PC version of Help! I’m Haunted.Video game making books we mention:
