Kathryn Hymes on Xenolanguage

This week on the Vintage RPG Podcast, we chat with Kathryn Hymes of Thorny Games about Xenolanguage. Thorny Games makes games about language (see the rather sublime Dialect for example) and their latest effort, currently on Kickstarter, draws inspiration from Arrival, Contact and “The Story of Your Life” to create an experience that is about first contact with an alien species, but also about learning to see the world differently.  And the game mechanic centers on a talking board!

Xenolanguage is up on Kickstarter now. Go back it and get the game in both its analog glory and as a module for Tabletop Simulator!

New discount code from our friends at Noble Knight! In honor of the season, use HORROR at checkout in store or online for %10 off orders over $10. This one runs from October 12 through November 11 (Halloween is year round, honestly). Buy yourself something spooky.
