ETAO PODCAST, EPISODE 141.
Chandana Ekanayake has more than two decades’ experience in the game industry, stretching from work on The Elder Scrolls Adventures: Redguard and Enter the Matrix to his projects at Outerloop Games, the studio he co-founded. Here he talks about the studio’s anti-colonialist sci-fi falconry adventure Falcon Age, as well as their upcoming game Thirsty Suitors, an RPG about romance, family, cooking, skating, mutual understanding, and lots else besides.
