ETAO Podcast, Episode 47.

Gabby DaRienzo stops by to talk about her work as one half of the core Laundry Bear Games team, from A Mortician’s Tale (and Tracktoons) to their still-in-its-early-days next project—as well as her excellent, now-concluded podcast Play Dead, and her extensive and varied freelance work on Celeste, Parkitect, Graceful Explosion Machine, and the upcoming Super Crush K.O. (among other fine videogamic works).

I do of course also take the chance to talk to Gabby about death in games (and in general), on account of her well and truly knowing her shit in that arena—and I pick her brain about the upscaled visuals in Katamari Damacy REROLL, for that very same reason.

The Order of the Good Death and Smoke Gets in Your Eyes are very much worth checking out, and this video here is a pretty excellent introduction to Caitlin Doughty’s ideas and work.
