Bobby Fowler and Brenda Noiseux outrun the Hunter to join us again and talk about Space Chase, their co-op tabletop map-’em-up and the delightful follow-up to their assiduously PvP card game Wicked Apples. This is, to put it mildly, a strange time to be making indie tabletop games—not only because tabletop games are irresolvably social (much to the fear-then-joy of introverts such as myself) but also because the way these things usually get sold is by players and developers playing together. That’s intimate, and wonderful, and keenly missing from our lives right now (but hopefully, hopefully not for too much longer).
You can get Space Chase and Wicked Apples on the Almost A Game website.
