As we start the trek towards our next 150 episodes, we sit down for a good ol’ fashion long-form conversation with the designer of Star Crossed, Alex Roberts! We chat about old school radio and podcasting vs. the current podcasting methods and Alex gives me a brief history of Canada before we chat about her origin into podcasting and game design.
ABOUT STAR CROSSED
The excitement, tension and heartbreak of romance! In Star Crossed, you’ll craft characters who are powerfully attracted to each other, but have a compelling reason not to act on their feelings. Some of the things you’ll want your character to do are going to increase that attraction – and when that happens, you are going to pull a brick out from an increasingly shaky tower and place it on the top. If the tower falls, your characters act on their feelings! Will your love be doomed, triumphant, or something in-between? Find out in Star Crossed!
ABOUT ALEX ROBERTS
Alex Roberts is an explorer and reporter in the world of roleplaying games. She wants to bring meaningful experiences of play to the whole darn world.
THE 2019 EVERYTHING IS AWESOME HEADstrong COMEDY FESTIVAL AND FUNDRAISER
On January 27th, 2019, we are organizing our THIRD annual one-day festival to celebrate the anniversary of Everything is Awesome, celebrate the awesome creators located in Philadelphia, and—most importantly—raise money for The HEADstrong Foundation, an organization that offers financial, residential, and emotional support to families who are affected by cancer. Our goal is to raise $500 this year and you can help to get us there by donating at the festival or RIGHT NOW at bit.ly/headstrongfest!
