Jane Jensen -Designer
We talk to the legendary creator of the Gabriel Knight series of adventure games and founder of Pinkerton Road Studio, Jane Jensen. She has created a development studio that builds titles based on Community Supported Gaming, where the gamers themselves fund the studio and help decide which games are made. In this interview Jane talks about how she got her start in the industry, why she left to become a novelist, and why she returned. She explains why CSG and Kickstarter was the best way to bring her style of game to market. We also talk about how adventure games have progressed over the years, how Twilight and True Blood have shaped the horror genre, and the importance of having good actors read your lines. It's a fun 45 minutes that you need to listen to, right now.
