Podcast One Shot N°88 : Gloomhaven, d'Isaac Childres...

La Cellule

(Durée 01 : 31 : 18)Télécharger le podcastGloomhaven est un jeu de société coopératif créé par Isaac Childres. Sur les hexagones de Gloomhaven, des groupes de héros et d'héroïnes se succèdent pour explorer des donjons conçus comme de véritables puzzles. La richesse des mécaniques et des scénarios est telle que le jeu casse les codes de son propre média... Cette semaine, avec Maxime, Natacha, Luca, Céline et Adrien, nous tentons vainement de définir Gloomhaven. Est-il un jeu de rôle ? Un dungeon crawler ? Et s'il fallait s'éloigner de la simulation pour comprendre Gloomhaven ? A moins qu'il ne s'agisse d'une simulation d'un jeu-vidéo sur table ? Quelles sont les mécaniques principales du jeu et comment celles-ci nous donnent l'impression d'être tantôt dans un jeu de plateau, tantôt dans un jeu de rôle, tantôt dans un jeu-vidéo. Chacun voit dans Gloomhaven ce qu'il veut y voir. Mais lorsque nous découvrons ce qui semble être le propos du jeu, tout est dit : Gloomhaven apparaît soudain comme le récit d'une aventure collective...Bonnes semaines à tous et à toutes, portez-vous bien et, surtout, jouez bien !

Will it Game? Episode 50 with Isaac Childres

Will It Game? Podcast

It’s episode 50! This week we have a very special guest on the show. Our guest judge is Isaac Childres, the creator of Gloomhaven, the co-designer of Return to Dark Tower and his latest creation Frosthaven. With such a fabulous guest on the show, Ric and Ryan thought they would put together two amazing game pitches in hopes of impressing Isaac. Unfortunately, both of them dropped the ball, spent 45 seconds on their game pitches and made total fools of themselves. In other words, it’s a pretty normal episode. Will Ric have enough fuel in the tank to pull out a win? Can Ryan roll his way to yet another victory? Be sure to check out the amazing games that Isaac creates at Cephalofair Games. Be sure to check into the Frosthaven Kickstarter that is live now through May 1, 2020. Like the content that is filing your ears?
