At Gencon this year, I was part of a panel with Kenneth Hite, Dennis Detwiller, and George Vasilakos to discuss zombies in gaming. We talked about many topics, from favorite films, to the symbolism of zombies and how to use them in games. If you’re a zombie fan, you should give it a listen!

We had a blast at Gencon 2012 and we have a ton of new material for you, starting with this interview with Kenneth Hite about his new game, Night’s Black Agents. It’s a horror/spy thriller game that Mr. Hite designed more or less to give players an excuse to slay the undead while being total badass secret agents. It’s based on the GUMSHOE game engine but has new rules appropriate for the spy thriller genre.
