This week, we bring guns to a sword fight.

On This Episode:

  • Carter talks to White Whale Games, creators of the upcoming God of Blades, about how they designed their title to take advantage of touch screens, but why it's not inherently dependent on them. As well, they discuss the game's bonus geolocation features, as well as the effect that their Kickstarter funding has had on the game's development.
  • Carter discusses Lock 'n' Load with GameLab's Pawel Weder, discussing what they did differently with this dual-stick shooter than their previous games D.A.R.K. and Pirate's Treasure.
