Gerry sits down with the designer of Osprey GamesThe Doomed, Chris McDowall and discusses the philosophy he had when bringing the game to life. We dive into his previous gaming and writing experience and how The Doomed became a minimalist mechanic system which still brings complexity and flavour to a narrative wargame in the midst of an apocalypse.
