A few days ago we interviewed game designer Brad Phillips from Evertide Games about their upcoming game Goblins: Alternate Realities (GAR). We tried to get CEO Richard James on the phone as well, but technology was not our friend that day. Still, he e-mailed us later a few addendums, so you get the best of both worlds!
The game is based off of Goblins Comic by Tarol Hunt and will be launching June 3rd on Kickstarter. If you haven’t read Goblins Comic, then I suggest you head on over there now, it’s hands down my favorite gaming webcomic.
That being said, you don’t have to be a Goblins fan to enjoy the game they’ve been brewing up. It has enough great stuff for everyone. Take a look at the interview past the cut and leave a comment with your thoughts!
Charlie Brumfield runs Artisan Dice, a company that started after what he thought was an improbable Kickstarter project last year. He is back again with polyhedral dice and metal dice. He was nice enough to sit down with DM Fiat to answer some questions with a week left in his latest Kickstarter.
Perseus and Ophelia interviewed Ryan Dancey of Goblinworks to discuss the upcoming Pathfinder Online MMO. We talk about the role of assassins, the encounter escalation process and the opportunity for user-generated PVE content.

Last week, we talked to Joanna and Rob from Standard Action, a comedy web series about a hapless party of adventurers and their various hijinks. They’re running a Kickstarter to fund season 3 and when we spoke with them, their kickstarter was just a hair shy of funding. It has since funded (but they haven’t hit the musical episode stretch goal yet!).
We talk about puppets, taxidermied squirrels, Joanna’s sandwich-making skills and the challenges of shooting outdoors in the rainforest.
