Tim Conkling, creator of strategy title and digital board game, Antihero, talks design inspiration, Steam reviews, AI programming and curiously titled locations, such as the Salty Nonce and Windy Bottom.
The episode starts with talk of games that have made the leap from the physical tabletop to the virtual one. Games such as Settlers of Catan, Ticket to Ride, Talisman, Warhammer Quest and many more besides.
Do they work in digital form, what holds them back and to what extent did Tim play those games for the purposes of education, motivation and inspiration for his own development journey of Antihero?
