Podcast: People Who Write (And Program) Video Games

By Kirk Hamilton on at

We’re back for another Kotaku Splitscreen special from the Game Developers Conference in San Francisco. Today we’re joined by storied RPG writer Chris Avellone, Double Fine senior gameplay programmer Anna Kipnis, and 80 Days writer Meg Jayanth.

Jason and I talk with each guest about the games they’ve worked on, with conversation focusing on Alpha Protocol, Prey, CRPGs in general, Broken Age, Psychonauts, 80 Days and Horizon: Zero Dawn. You can listen to the episode on iTunes or Google Play, or directly here. (MP3 download here.) As always, you can reach us at splitscreen@kotaku.com.

We’ll be back with three more guests tomorrow, then a special Nintendo Switch-centric episode on Friday.
