I really enjoyed Darkest Dungeon when it came out a couple years ago, so when Darkest Dungeon 2 was announced recently, I knew had to get the folks from Red Hook Studios back on the pod [download link here].
Tyler Sigman and Chris Bourassa join me to talk about how Darkest Dungeon has improved since launch, the creation of its characters, and its somewhat troubled ports. Along the way, they sprinkle in some new insight about Darkest Dungeon 2, including how it will tackle the story this time around (it sounds like narrative will take center stage in a much more meaningful way this time around). Check it out!
