A Game And A Chat Ep 2: Jason Rohrer

The Most Dangerous Game

Jason Rohrer isn't like other game designers. He isn't really like them at all. From his early days eschewing videogame norms to make a game about the inevitably of death and loss in Passage to cooperative storytelling intrigue-o-tron Sleep Is Death to wild (and controversial) Minecraft "religious" experiment Chain World, Rohrer's games aren't escapism. They often make people uncomfortable. They often make him uncomfortable. The Castle Doctrine, then, might just be his most unsettling interactive experience yet. It's about breaking, entering, stealing, murdering, and defending your virtual family from other players doing the same. As with Rohrer's other games, it stems from deeply personal experiences, and we're going to talk about that, the sensitive nature of many topics portrayed in his game, paranoia, gun ownership, game sales, and tons more. This one might be a bit more, er, heavy than the chat with Tim Schafer. But it should be incredibly fascinating as well. Join us live after the break, starting at 11:00 AM PT/7:00 PM GMT.
