Every Game in This City

A podcast about playing well together

Every Game in This City is a podcast about playing well together. In Season 1, ten game designers, researchers, and curators met up in Malaysia to try and play every escape room in Kuala Lumpur. In Season 2, four familiar voices and four new friends gathered in China to try and watch every game at the Dota 2 International Championships in Shanghai. Along the way we explore each city, meet new people, and record daily discussions about our experience playing together!
