Super Joystiq Podcast 081: Tim Schafer interview, Broken Age, Risk of Rain, Don’t Starve | Joystiq

This week’s Super Joystiq Podcast wants to be alone with technology.

It’s a pretty fine week for the podcast- some might even call it double fine. Ludwig, Susan, Richard, and Anthony convene to talk about a couple of smaller games, and a couple of bigger ones. On deck: Don’t Starve, Risk of Rain, Super Mario 3D World, and Broken Age. The crew also discusses their all-time favorite platformers.

And if that’s not enough, we have something very special this week: an interview with the adventure game legend, Double Fine’s Tim Schafer. Ludwig and Schafer sit down to talk Broken Age, modern game development, and the return to classic adventure games.
