This week’s show features an interview Eron Rauch, a professional photographer who has spent a lot of time comparing the landscapes of World of Warcraft to the photos of the old American West. Rauch explains how exploring a videogame world is a lot like walking around on a Rodin sculpture–or a guided tour of Disneyland. We also hear from composer AJ Lornie about how he combines shredding electric guitar with sounds from old appliances to create the soundtrack to Earth Alliance. Producer Dan Cox talks with Ben Rivers, developer of the pixel-horror-adventure game Home about gamemaker and the creative boom in indie games.
