In November we interviewed Lys Galati of Sphinx Group for our podcast. She had some great information and insights about the gaming industry, the present and future of RPGs, the current state of crowdfunding and lots more. To keep the podcast’s runtime reasonable, we edited the conversation way down. Lots of folks wanted to hear the full interview, so we’ve posted it to the site.

Specimen Update: New game board design AND Dr. Viktor Challenge!
We have a couple of fantastic graphic designers working on the game. Mr. John Eiberger is working on the revamped game board; here’s a look at his design for the Hibernation Room!
We’ve also introduced the Dr. Viktor Four-Day Challenge:
Dr. Viktor, the scientist who developed the Specimen, was originally brought on board the T.C.S. Brown in suspended animation. He was killed when the meteor hit the ship at the beginning of the game. But we have an expansion card set planned that allows Dr. Viktor to survive and become part of the crew. This expansion was originally slated to be an unlockable/stretch goal, but we’re going to do something special: if we can get to $10,000 in pledges by Thursday, Sept. 27 at 11:59 CST, we’ll include the Dr. Viktor expansion as part of the game!
Doctor Viktor has survived the meteor impact. But will he help the crew hunt down the Specimen? Or will he be reluctant to destroy his own horrific creation? This expansion explores these questions. Includes: Dr. Viktor Character Card and Playing Piece, 10 New Strategy Cards, and rules addendum.
