Listen 00:48:46

Guests: Hasit Zala, Patrick Klepek, Jake Muncy

Philadelphians: what do you think our fair city would look like in the year 2029 if a united Korea was the world’s global powerhouse and decided to invade America?  Imagine no more!  A new video game depicts just this scenario.  It’s called Homefront: The Revolution, a first-person action shooter that takes place in a dystopian Philadelphia that is under siege. Today, we’ll talk with the game’s director, HASIT ZALA, to find out what it was like to create a nightmarish future version of America’s first capital.  Then, we’ll talk about some of the more interesting developments happening in the video game world with PATRICK KLEPEK of Kotaku and JAKE MUNCY of WIRED.
