Listen: Season Three of Unlimited Hyperbole
Posted on 24th Oct 2012 at 07:06 by Joe Martin with 77 comments
As those of you who've listened previously will know, Unlimited Hyperbole takes a different approach to most other podcasts. It uses a pre-determined theme to guide discussion with a new special guest for each episode, then edits those discussions down to a focused 15 minute show.
This season the topic is 'Matters of Character' and the first guest is James Swallow - the New York Times best-selling author and writer behind such games as Deus Ex: Human Revolution, Killzone 2 and Fable: The Journey.
Focusing mainly on Deus Ex: Human Revolution, this episode sees James talk about the process of writing for videogames and how he thinks characters can work best in interactive fiction. He also touches on a number of ideas which were ultimately cut from the finished release of Human Revolution - such as Adam Jensen's obsession with the films of Stanley Kubrick.
While I hope you'll let us know your thoughts on the show using the comments below, it should be said that Unlimited Hyperbole is a personal project and isn't directly associated with Bit-tech in any official capacity.
You can listen to the first episodes of Season One and Season Two here on Bit-tech, but I won't be putting the rest of Season Three on here. You're best off subscribing to the feed or bookmarking the homepage if you want to keep up to date.
