The Fourth Player video game podcast

In this episode, Paul, Ben, Nathan and Max address the rise of the auteur with the release of first-person puzzler The Witness and first-person walker Firewatch. In the footsteps of Myst and Gone Home, these two games have captured conversation and we talk about how their development impacts what they offer as an experience. We answer listener email on the biggest let down we've experienced in pre-release hype. Thanks to our friends at, Games Laboratory and Plantronics.
