The Sausage Factory 318 – Guildmaster: Gratuitous Subtitle by Jim Makes Games

Chris O’Regan chats to Jim Baker of Jim Makes Games about the design and development of their satirical RPG, Guildmaster: Gratuitous Subtitle

Satire comes in many forms, but it is not often so firmly directed at games in the way that Jim Baker has done with Guildmaster: Gratuitous Subtitle. In this episode we explore the concept of humour in games.

The Sausage Factory is an interview-based podcast that lifts the lid on the makers of videogames. It examines the way in which games are made by asking the very people who create them, though the questions asked aren’t just about game design, they also cover how developers made their start and what inspires them as creators.

Split into two halves, the first segment delves into what makes the developers tick by asking about how they started, what and who inspires them and what games they are currently playing, whereas the second part of the show covers the game that they are currently working on and the thought processes behind its development. So, if you really want to hear about a game’s gestation in full and frank detail then you have found the right podcast.
