There Will Be Games

Remember Ridley Scott's Alien? 

A movie with the infamous scene where John Hurt convulses around until a creature bursts out of his chest, spraying the bewildered crew with gore as they look on in horror? Ravensburger has a new family board game based on that movie. Josh and Al talk about why Alien: Fate of the Nostromo works better than it should and what it means to really be a horror game.

There Will Be Games

Josh Look (He/Him)
Staff Podcaster

One night during the summer of 1997, Josh Look's cool uncle who owned a comic shop taught him how to play Magic the Gathering. The game set off his imagination in a way that he could not sleep that night, and he's been fascinated by games ever since. He spent many afternoons during his high school years skipping homework to play Dungeons & Dragons and paint Warhammer minatures, going on to discover hobby board games in his early 20s. He's been a writer for ThereWillBe.Games and is the creator and co-host of the geek culture podcast, The Wolfman's Lounge. He enjoys games that encourage a heavy amount of table talk and those that explore their themes beyond just their settings.
