  • Games about the Cold, Part 3 - Into the icy depths

    Winter has set in, and so we're looking at games about the cold this week. Today we look at the heavier end of things, and how games have used the theme in ways that either feel cold or just look cold.

    Winter has set in, and it is cold outside now, so we're discussing games that have something to do with the cold. Today, Friday December 22nd 2017, we look at the heavier games that use the theme. Some of them use it well to make you feel the cold as you play, and others have it more as an aesthetic theme. We also discuss Jonathan's own design process for the Frozen Wastes expansion to Runebound. Apologies for the technical difficulties that delayed the posting of this episode.

    Games discussed:Dead of Winter; Evo; Robinson Crusoe: Adventures on the Cursed Island; T.I.M.E. Stories: Expedition Endurance; The Thing: Infection at Outpost 31; Runebound (2nd Edition): The Frozen Wastes
