Unlimited Hyperbole is a new, tiny podcast I’ve made. It’s about games and the stories we tell about them. I’ll be releasing a new episode every Monday, each with a special guest. I’ll be talking to them about a topic decided for a season of five episodes. This season: “My Favourite Game”.
In this first episode Dan Pinchbeck, Creative Director of TheChineseRoom and designer on Dear Esther, talks about his favourite game: STALKER: Shadow of Chernobyl.
Why did the game make Dan re-evaluate his PhD on narrative in computer games? How did the tortured development process create a better game than if work had gone smoothly? Listen in to find out, or subscribe using the buttons above.
