ETAO PODCAST, EPISODE 130.
Spenser Starke stops by to talk about his “silent role-playing game” Alice Is Missing, the importance of players’ emotional safety, tabletop systems as “subgenre generators,” and the undersung virtue of finely crafted vibes.
You can get the digital version of Alice Is Missing on Roll20 and DriveThruRPG.
You can get the physical version at Renegade Game Studios.
• Here’s the first live-recorded playthrough of Alice Is Missing, at Gen Con 2020.
• “Type 2 Fun,” for those who don’t know, refers to those kinds of fun that aren’t fun in the traditional sense, but are still rewarding—experiences that are engaging in other ways in the moment, and/or that prove valuable and meaningful in retrospect.
