Daft Souls 88: Shadow Tactics: Blades of the Shogun, Gravity Rush 2, Nels Anderson


Daft Souls returns for 2017, with some shiny new features! We haven't re-invented the horse, but we've tried to mix things up: each episode will now feature one game developer answering five questions we've carefully chosen. First up is Nels Anderson, lead designer of Mark of the Ninja and designer on Firewatch. You may also remember him from our Subterfuge Diaries.

in addition to us having a quick chat about a game from our youth that we've revisited. This time it was Phantasy Star Online - you can catch a video of us playing that here. Finally, some questions from you. Nothing new there - except a dangerously smooth jingle? I might end up going to jail for that one, actually. If it's possible to be jailed for jingles, that might be the one that crosses the line.

A final update that's relevant at this point: Daft Souls will now be once every two weeks, and will mostly just be myself and Quinns. Having cycling guests on the podcast was awesome, but also increasingly tricky to maintain for a number of rather dull, logistical reasons. It may not be permanent, but for now - here we go!

Myself and Quinns would once again like to take this opportunity to thank you all again for your patience, and if you do love the podcast and what we do - a review on iTunes would be ace!
