Guillotine is a very silly game about a very somber subject. It’s hard to take it seriously… but that doesn’t mean we can’t try. In this episode, we talk with history professor Dr. Jennifer J. Popiel about some fascinating events of the French Revolution and the lessons it can offer us today, and designer Paul Peterson tells us about how his first original design came together.
Immersed is produced by Cardboard Edison.
