Episode #39 – Leaders Of Euphoria

What do you do when the very first game you ever publish is a smash hit? Why, borrow the license to another popular game, apply, rinse and repeat, of course! If only it was all that easy… In today’s episode, we speak with Brian Henk and Clayton Skancke, the founders of Overworld Games, and the designers and publishers of the upcoming social deduction game, Leaders of Euphoria: Choose a Better Oppressor.

During our discussion, we chat about the advantages of working with other designers (and publishers), the up’s and down’s of self-promotion, and the challenges of designing a game that requires players keep their eyes shut. We play the Game Design Challenge and create a tale of scandal and intrigue at the public library (without making too much noise and disturbing the librarian).
