Navid Khonsari of Ink Studios, developer of indie game 1979 Revolution, joins Drew Dixon and M Joshua to talk about the game, his life and beliefs.

Born in Canada, Navid Khonsari was raised until the age of 10 in Iran when his family left just as the 1979 revolution began. Memories of street protests, propaganda being dropped from helicopters, and the military on one side of the street students and others on the opposite side were all part of the memories for Navid during his early childhood.

Navid talks about how the game uses a full Iranian cast in order to bring something from each actor’s individual history to breathe life into the fictional story of the 1979 revolution.
