Space-Cast! #18. Game Design Wizard
For the first time ever,* game designer, instructor, writer, and overall wizard Geoff Engelstein appears on a podcast to discuss a trio of his games, along with some insider baseball. Join us as we discuss getting an author’s permission to treat a protagonist like a doofus, what it’s like to gamify a peace conference, and why “gravity” is one of the greatest gaming metaphors of the decade.
(*Not the first time ever.)

Just wanted to drop in to say that I really appreciate your interviews on your podcast and that this episode in particular was top notch thanks to both of your insights and humor. Thanks for writing and interviewing in a way that cannot be done by others.
Thank you for the kind words, Cameron!
