Podcast: How Prey’s Best Characters Came To Life

One of Prey’s biggest strengths is how it realizes the inhabitants of the space station Talos-1, and on today’s Kotaku Splitscreen, we talk to the man responsible for many of them: Chris Avellone.

First, Kirk and I talk a bit about Nier: Automata (6:55) and the Nintendo Switch (11:15) before jumping into this week’s news: Zelda reportedly coming to smartphones (16:24); Tom Brady appearing on the cover of Madden 18 (21:19); and Alan Wake disappearing from Xbox Live and Steam (28:55). Then we speak to Avellone (34:30) about his writing work on Prey and how he constructed so many of those great characters. We even BLOW HIS MIND with the revelation of a fantastic easter egg. Finally, we’ve got a couple of listener questions (1:04:17) including one that really Takes a Chance.

Hey everyone, I'm Jonathan but people will know me as Jon... I enjoy hiking and exploring the outside world as well as getting to see fantastic views. It can bring you to the most beautiful places on earth and into contact with amazing plants and wildlife and can be done all year round which is why I enjoy it so much despite it being challenging sometimes due to the weather - it has allowed me to meet a lot of new people and experience things I wouldn't have before. I also find it relaxing and interesting. I also really enjoy blogging and sharing my experiences with similar people. Hopefully you will read mine. My company Adventures Gate displays my other hobby - gaming! I love collecting items to do with gaming and playing in general. I guess I am a bit of a geek when it comes to this. Adventures Gate now offer free postage options when you spend more than £20 (there may be a small additional charge for larger items). That`s free 1st class post in the UK and free airmail to Europe.
