Everything is Awesome Episode 156: And Then We Died w/ Emma Larkins

Leave a Comment

Game designer, Emma Larkins, joins the show to chat about game design. Her and Kev also chat about her game And Then We Died and the right demographic for it.


Emma Larkins is a board game designer, creator of Heartcatchers, …and then we died, Abandon All Artichokes, and a bunch of prototypes in progress. She’s a co-host of #TableTakes presented by Gen Con, a weekly board game news show on Twitch, and she also streams game design on her own Twitch channel. She writes about her daily game design practice (#gamedesigndaily) on Twitter and Instagram. Emma has spoken about game design and community building on podcasts and at PAX, SHUX, DreamHack, and Twitch Con. She’s also a science fiction author!

When Emma’s not toying with mechanics or inventing new post-apocalyptic worlds, you’ll find her workshopping games as a contractor at FPC.
