The undeniably trill Benjamin Rivers stops by to talk about his critically-acclaimed iOS/PS4/PSVita/PC/Mac horror game Home. The conversation gets pretty crazy, and Ben is dubbed the "Canadian Lovecraft," a term he begrudgingly accepts. We then talk about his upcoming sci-fi romance game (how great is that?) Alone with You. Lots of thoughts on writing multiple versions of stories, not fully controlling your own narrative, and realizing your greatest fears (seriously).

P.S. Thank you thank you thank you for listening. Please...gulp...review the show on iTunes.
Dr. Jonny Metts stops by to discuss his ten plus years working on a popular video game website, the Nintendo podcast from which he recently retired, as well as his awesome book, Surviving Coventry!
Plenty of great nuggets on why we do creative endeavors even when there isn't much money in them as well as the difficulty of letting go of our past outlets.
Remember: New episodes of Digital Writes will be posted on the 1st and 15th of every month.
