OMGeek Podcast 1: Character Consistency in Games

It’s true! We’ve been working hard at it, and today we’re proud to announce that the first-ever episode of the OMGeek podcast is now live. Swords for everyone!

This episode’s topic is Character Consistency in Games. We discuss the problem of video game characters and how often and how easily we can play them out of character through the design of the game itself. We also touch upon the topic of ludonarrative dissonance briefly.

Listen now!
