Miraculously, this episode about the investigative full-motion video game Telling Lies has absolutely no spoilers. Instead, the game’s sole programmer Lizi Attwood explains how she developed the virtual desktop with which the player interacts, what it was like to work on a game that – by its FMV nature – basically had no content for a large part of development, and how the changing reflection of the player character seen in the background of the screen at all times actually works.

Jordan also frets that she’s playing the game wrong.

This episode marks the end of the first series of Talking Simulator. The podcast will be back with a second series, so make sure to Tweet your ideas for excellent potential guests to @talkingsimpod.
