Light, party games all have their place. But sometimes you just need a four-hour, open-world, deep-dive of a game… and we’re here to deliver. In this week’s episode, we speak with Mark Swanson, the founder of Odd Bird Games, and the creator of the upcoming euro-style board game, Feudum.
During our discussion, we chat about the complexities of designing an open-world gaming system, strategies for building buzz before you launch, and why every great designer needs to be brave. We play the Game Design Challenge and create an equestrian game of Nordic exploration that combines euro mechanics with Blokus.
