Episode Info:

It's narratives that transform us. The narratives we create with each other shape our lives, help heal pain or inflict it, deepen connection or destroy it. Narratives are key.

This week's episode: Narrative, featuring an interview with Narrative Director Xalavier Nelson Jr. He's worked on Hypnospace Outlaw and Can Androids Pray?, and is currently developing An Airport for Aliens Currently Run By Dogs

For the Director's Cut, we discuss Overwatch and ludonarrative dissonance (there's a $1000 phrase) in Why is "The Last Bastion" Stuck in Eternal Deathmatches?

Finally, we close with a game recommendation from Jenny Windom, talking a bit about how game mechanics in The Pedestrian shape her personal experiences.
