Recorded in the halls of BreakoutCon2019 we got to a chance to meet Sharang Biswas. Sharang makes weird games, the kind of games you'll most likely come across in an art gallery installation rather than a convention room floor. But along with making those games he's also involved as an educator and writer examining how we play games and how we can better design them to convey the stories and experiences we're trying to share in those games.
Whatever conversation I thought I was going to have I quickly realized I was in way over my head about five minutes in and just immersed myself in the knowledge he was willing to share with me. Sharang has given the "how" part of how we play games some serious thought and I hope you enjoy the conversation we got to share. It's certainly informed me the next time I sat down to play a game!

It’s too late. It’s too late for the elves to stop it. It’s too late for the caravan to escape it. It’s too late for Bellun. It’s almost too late for Ludo.
All they can do now is face the darkness and hope the light still still shine long enough to defeat The Blightborn.
