Alton Wheelhouse is the creator and lead architect of the upcoming tabletop RPG game Dimensions!.
This week, Mike is once again joined by the powerful Alton Wheelhouse – the creator & lead architect of the upcoming tabletop RPG game Dimensions! Mike & Alton’s chat continues with a discussion on the importance of childlike wonder as well as the importance of effort, touching on the concept of “good & evil”, how video games & RPGs can help bring people together, the impact games can have on anxieties & mental illnesses, Alton’s biggest challenge creating Dimensions, what they want Dimensions to achieve through it’s Kickstarter, the art of Dimensions and so much more, so be sure to check it out! Last week, in part 1 of their chat, Mike & Alton discuss Alton’s beginnings in the tabletop RPG realm, why he’s decided to create a new role playing game (similar in style to Dungeons & Dragons in many respects), the appeal of easter eggs in games (along with hints of how to find them in Dimensions), what the appeal of video games & tabletop RPG games are to people, some of the features that makes Dimensions different from other RPGs and more! Dimensions' Kickstarter has finished and unfortunately did not reach target but they are putting together alternative methods of fundraising, which will be confirmed in the future! Last episode Mike spoke with Dan about his time as a cameraman at Bestival and some of his work at university, before delving into a discussion regarding music, including Dan’s previous band experience and how bands “make it”, followed by a tangent about the perfect amount of people to watch movies with and some of their favourite horror movies, before getting into bands changing their sound & “selling out” and much more! Promo for the novel One Hundred by Frank Burton - Mike & Frank discuss the book in episode #56 of GCC so be sure to check it out if the promo interests you!
