About One Cool Thing
One Cool Thing is a podcast speaking with people in and around videogames about One Cool Thing not from games which is really fascinating them at the moment. One of the founding principles of Die Gute Fabrik is interdisciplinarity - collaborating with people from other art forms to bring fresh ideas to video games. And that’s also what’s at the heart of this podcast series: what not from games is shaping how people think about making games right now?
About This Episode
On episode 3 we meet Halima Hassan one of our Die Gute Collaborators who chats to Hannah Nicklin about the importance of communities.
Halima was one of our game writing interns in 2022 and has since moved on from us to work with the game design collective ghosts as a lead writer, and in her newly minted game writing portfolio describes herself as being interested in telling stories that surprise, challenge, and deal in radical comfort.
