The Ban Hammer Podcast

The guys over at TwonkHammer invited Forsaken Studios onto their weekly podcast, the Ban Hammer, to talk a bit about Embers of Caerus. Dave Belcher, Founder and Technical Director, and Mark Hope, Senior Writer, both joined them for the podcast.

Cue a really fun discussion about all aspects of Embers of Caerus; how the project started, where the project is going and a whole load of deep information on some of the planned core game systems. What was intended to be a short interview, followed by another segment, ended up a whopping 90 minutes of really great discussion. I think it's safe to say the crew of the Ban Hammer were converted, and rather excited about the project!

Tune in to hear everything that was discussed HERE. (The EoC segment starts at ~28m. Sorry, indiedb won't let us embed the podcast directly)

So, due to the fact that the facebook page hasn't been updated in almost two years, on here hasn't been updated in as long, and even some of the developers were on Facebook commenting on that it was dead... it's dead, folks.

I reckon it would be awesome if this game was around for 5 years or so and then another great fire killed everybody and number 2 came out =)
