Shakespeare's Landlord Chat #9 - Remembering Lafayette

Welcome back to the One More Story Games podcast. We're a little under the weather but we continue to work on the Shakespeare's Landlord video game. Our first topic is to discuss the recent passing of actor Nelsan Ellis who played Lafayette on HBO's True Blood (based on Charlaine Harris' Sookie Stackhouse series of books). Charlaine's character Lafayette deals with LGBTQ bigots "Tip Your Waitress" and how her novels discuss social injustices. Our next topic is to continue to announce that Charlaine Harris herself will be joining our podcast on July 28th at 3pm EST. Allena, one of our viewers, mentions the way that Charlaine weaves her characters throughout her series; Lily Bard even shows up in the Sookie Stackhouse series at one point. The development game continues. We are now designing the character conversations for the game. More on that later. We now have a model for Lily's block which includes the Arboretum, Shakespeare Garden Apartments, Lily's House, Carleton's House, and S...

Shakespeare's Landlord Chat #9 - Remembering Lafayette

Shakespeare's Landlord Chat #8 - Tabula Rasa

We're using the Be.Live Talk Show format, and we got off to a rough start when our first podcast attempt was halted when it crashed. This week we're talking about blank slates or Tabula Rasa since we officially started the production of the Shakespeare's Landlord game. So we've more in game art to show you, that we will not be posting anywhere else (check out the YouTube version podcast listeners). First off, our podcast is now on Stitcher, and second we're reminding our listeners that we will have Charlaine Harris herself on our podcast on July 28th. Submit any questions you want to ask her to #askcharlaine. This week we created the Shakespeare's Landlord story project in StoryStylus, so we're starting from a blank slate or a "tabula rasa". The characters, items and topics of conversation has been entered into the system and we'll be working on the locations and world building next week. There is a discussion about how StoryStylus works by building a set of story bricks, or story n...

Shakespeare's Landlord Chat #7 - A Package for Charlaine

We're re-announcing that Charlaine Harris herself will be joining us in an upcoming podcast for July 28th. First off, we do a bit of a follow-up from the seriousness of the previous podcast. Our game will not shy away from the emotional pain that Lily Bard struggles to overcome in that playing (as Lily) will sometimes mean being triggered by emotional events: more on that in future podcasts. This week we're announcing that we're moving from pre-production to full production. This is just a fancy way of saying that we finished most of the planning and are ready to start building the game. To celebrate this we wanted to share with you what we will be sending off to Charlaine for her to review. Also, we announce that there will be two different storylines in our game: authentic and alternate. One will be a faithful adaptation of the Shakespeare's Landlord novel and the other will similar yet different for those who have read the book. This way we can keep you on your toes with a whole ...

Shakespeare's Landlord Chat #7 - A Package for Charlaine

Shakespeare's Landlord Chat #6 - But Seriously Folks

WARNING: This episode may cause trigger warnings due to descriptions of sexual violence. Jean is back this week from the Jalloo Festival of Animation and Gaming, and Blair is back from a Costa Rican tech trade delegation. This week we are talking about Serious Games: video games that do more than just entertain. We get into the violent details of Chapter 5 in "Shakespeare's Landlord". Lily Bard is a character who was kidnapped and violently raped, and physically scarred by her attackers. This forms the basis of her character. Lily is a survivor who keeps people at arms distance. But there are other topics of racial hatred and violence contained within Charlaine's Lily Bard series. We discuss the challenges of adapting these novels as interactive works. Our goal is to create a work that creates empathy with victims of violence and abuse. We talk about the games that have made a difference for us in dealing with mature subject matter. I mention the board game version of the video game...

Shakespeare's Landlord Chat #5 - Becoming Shakespeare's Champions

Welcome back to the fifth One More Story Games podcast. We're using a new Facebook live streaming system called BeLive.tv, so for the first few minutes we're enjoying the new chat features where people have their comments shown right in the stream. Jean Leggett is away giving a keynote address at the Jalloo Festival of Animation and Gaming in Miramichi, New Brunswick. This week I'm talking with game-designer/writer/director Neal Hallford who is working with us to create the Shakespeare's Landlord story game. Neal has been in the games industry for 27 years and has worked on many sword & sorcery RPGs most notably "Betrayal at Krondor". We talk about appreciating storytelling, yet working within the video games industry. Neal shares his background of growing up in Tulsa and being close to the Texarkana setting and world of Lily Bard's Shakespeare. Most importantly we discuss becoming Shakespeare's Champions, protecting Charlaine's voice and characters in building the interactive versi...

Shakespeare's Landlord Chat #4 - What do women want?

This episode contains a collection of discussion topics. We talk about our latest success releasing Story Worlds on the iPad. (see Story Worlds in the iTunes Store, and Story Worlds in the Google Play for the Android). There is a brief summary of the opening chapter of Shakespeare's Landlord and what it will be like to play the first scene of our mystery adventure game as Lily Bard. Could there be a friendly and social Lily Bard? We ponder the phrase 'Suzy Creamcheese'. We discuss some of the challenges of female representation in games and stories. Finally, we outline some of the upcoming dev chats coming in the next few weeks, but more importantly that Charlaine Harris herself will be joining us in an upcoming future podcast.

Shakespeare's Landlord Chat #3 - Mysteries we love!

So here's a funny story! We actually recorded a podcast on the Friday but through an accident we lost the video. This is the re-recording of that chat.

We give some updated progress on the character portraits in the game and which actress we think best fits for Lily Bard.

Shakespeare's Landlord Chat #2 - Past or present?

Welcome to the second episode! In this episode Jean is finally able to finish her story of meeting Charlaine Harris at Bouchercon 2014. You will learn the magic in the question "Is that something we can help you with?" We consider setting the game in modern times versus 1996. The 'modern' when the novel was written. Will temporal paradoxes ensue? What will it feel like playing Lily Bard and making choices in the story of Shakespeare's Landlord? More importantly... where does Lily get her hair cut? All these questions get answered and more!
