The recording of our PAX East 2014 “Foreplay: Romance in Games” panel has gone up on Nerd Appropriate! (the panel itself starts at the 15-minute mark of the podcast)
On the panel you’ll find myself, Amanda Cosmos, and our moderator Sean Baptiste (Community Manager at Fire Hose Games), along with Miellyn Fitzwater Barrows (Co-founder of Tonic Industries & Creative Director at Gorgeous Robot), Hilary Heskett Shapiro (Co-founder of Tonic Industries & Product Marketing Manager at BioWare), Aenne Schumann (Co-Host, Reset Transmission Podcast, Press2Reset), and Mike Laidlaw (Creative Director of the Dragon Age franchise at BioWare).
It was such a pleasure being on the panel! And surprise guest Mike brought a funny element to the panel. Some games discussed: Gone Home, Mass Effect, Persona 3/4, Hate Plus, Amnesia, Catherine, Jade Empire, Dragon Age, Hakuoki, and Sweet Fuse, to name a few.
And you’ll get to listen to me admit to a crowd of 400 people that my favorite romantic scene in a game is from DRAMAtical Murder…
