Episode 326: Holding On
Release Date: June 3, 2019
Running Time: 85 min.
It could be tonight, it could be a week, but the end is coming for Billy Kerr. Each day, you and your team of nurses do your best to make him comfortable.
But Billy is not going quietly.
And he's not going to make your lives easy. His troubled past will haunt him to the end of his days unless you help him find peace of mind.
Holding On offers a game experience like no other. It is a drama-driven game that asks us to redefine the boundaries of play.
We don't just witness Billy's story. We play through it - the regrets and triumphs - the decisions that define his path. And in doing so, we are invited to reflect on our own.
It takes an act of true courage and audacity to embrace tragedy as a new voice for games. And that's exactly what Holding On is.
Listen in to explore the game and discover how these brave and bold designers forge a new path for players to enjoy.
Complete Show Notes continue after the break.
