Patrick Lysaght & “Commissioned” – ShatterCast Special Interview

Derrick Whitmore ShatterCast Tags: , , , , , , , ,

In this special segment, we interview the creator of the game “Commissioned” by Chara Games. It is an incredibly fun and at times challenging game that takes an engaging look at early church history.

Patrick Lysaght and his lovely wife, Katherine, released “Commissioned” about five years ago. However, the new expansion for the game entitled “The Call” just hit Kickstarter this week and was funded in 52 minutes. That is amazing!

They still have some incredible stretch goals they would love to meet and this is also a great time just to learn more about the game and its creators.

In this interview, we learn more about “Commissioned”, its mechanics, its expansion, and how the theme influenced its design. Insights are shared about general game design, funding games, and also publishing games. Finally, we discuss how difficult times, faith, and game design can all meet in beautiful ways.
