We’re getting the last bits of KublaCon 2012 out of our system at OgreCave by posting a podcast episode about Free RPG Day 2012. Coming up in just over a week on Saturday, June 16, you may be wondering what to expect from the annual event (now in its sixth year!). In this Gaming News Update interview, Aldo Ghiozzi of Impressions Advertising & Marketing (and Free RPG Day) talks about the influence of Kickstarter on this year’s giveaway offerings, how Queen of the Demonweb Pits nearly got reprinted, melting candy dice, and more. Nearly twenty companies – from Catalyst Game Labs and Fantasy Flight Games, to Goodman Games, Paizo Publishing, and Wizards of the Coast – are contributing free goodies this year. Wouldn’t you like to hear more?
It had been a while since we caught up with Signal Fire Studios, so we made sure to sit down with Jamie Chambers at KublaCon 2012 and hear what his company’s been up to lately. In this Gaming News Update interview, Jamie clues us in to the latest developments: the Building an Elder God card game; how the Metamorphosis Alpha RPG is progressing; gives us a description of the Pantheon card game; heck, Jamie even mentions the twisted children’s book The Very Hungry Cthulhupiller. And who could forget Ponythulhu?
KublaCon 2012 has come and gone, and OgreCave was there to get latest news from Crafty Games. In this Gaming News Update interview, Patrick Kapera of Crafty Games gives us the details on the Mistborn RPG, which has enjoyed an unprecedented level of involvement from Brandon Sanderson, the author of the popular fantasy novels. Then we hear about the SpyCraft 3.0-compatible 10,000 Bullets, a gritty modern setting along the lines of The Wire or Grand Theft Auto. Naturally, a quick mention of the game that started it all, SpyCraft, will be made. Patrick hints at even more as well.
