    Show Notes The folks at the Stop, Hack, and Roll podcast have announced a New Year, New Game, Game Jam. In this episode, Andrew Cedotal, Dustin Freeman, and I discuss our ideas for submissions to the game jam. I ended up changing the setting of my game to dystopic underground bunker. The final version I submitted to the jam is Loyalty Celebration. Also, I’ve launched a Patreon for my game designs: Episode Links Rules for the game jam Loyalty Celebration – my submission Andrew Cedotal’s Website Dustin Freeman’s Website Dustin Freeman’s Twitter

    Shownotes I’ve invited on Nathan Maton to talk about integrating biosensors into roleplaying games. We discuss currently available technology like brainwave, heart rate, and galvanic skin response sensors and the different game mechanics that can rely on them. Then we jump ahead to future technology and speculate a little on how brain-computer interfaces can create new storytelling experiences.
