Podcast 170 - Ruins of Mars – Interview with Don Riddle and Andrew Birkett
This week Jakub sits down with Don Riddle and Andrew Birkett to talk about their game Ruins of Mars coming to Kickstarter on September 24, 2019. The game is about uncovering the secrets of the lost civilizations which inhabited a metropolis found on Mars! You dothis through rondell style action selection with a cool twist where the power and availability of the actions changes each turn! We talk about how that mechanic came to be, Don’s game design philosophy, Atheris entertainments publishing goals, and of course donuts. Which is better, a boston creme donut or a chocolate eclair? Join us to find out!
