Drew hosts Will Dubé, President and CEO of Thunder Lotus Games, and the Creative Director behind their latest release, Sundered. The first half of the conversation centers around the practice of environmental story telling and hands-off tutorials including the greatest game play tutorial level ever, Super Mario Bros. Level 1-1.

The second half of the conversation turns to Will’s formative years in Montreal and his career start making mobile games. Drew and Will explore his past and the effect religion has on his life and art.

The theme of death is so easily dismissed in an industry where death simply means a mechanic where you respawn in a Vita-Chamber a few rooms back. But what if you could create something that would put deeper questions about death in the minds of gamers? Drew and Will talk about accomplishing this with Sundered and in the industry as a whole.
