ENGN Episode 56 – Hostage Negotiator Crime Wave w/ AJ Porfirio

Anthony and Jason sit down with AJ Porfirior, owner of Van Ryder Games and designer of Hostage Negotiator to discuss the game and its background. With the newest iteration of Hostage Negotiator, Crime Wave, hitting backer hands last month, we wanted to sit down and discuss the game, where it started, how it is developed, and future plans for the series.

Learn more about how Hostage Negotiator is structured, what the future of the series looks like, and what AJ thinks about luck and the application of game mechanics to mitigate that luck in the game.
