In this episode:
We chat with New Zealand based developer Joe Chang of Eyemobi and currently Kickstarting a procedurally generated horror game, Phantasmal. We also talk about horror games in general, Kickstarter, procedurally generated shooters, and some of our fears. Evan talks about Mother 3 again (Spoiler for Action Points Podcast Bingo, but then again it’s pretty much the free middle space).
