Daniel Voth is a super nice guy who’s always gone out of his way to say hello to me at events. He’s also a major contributor in the Winnipeg gaming scene. He’s a project manager at Bit Space Development, administrator of IGDA Winnipeg, and co-coordinator of Winnipeg Game Jam.
After talking about how Daniel got to be so involved in the gaming community, we get deep into perception and language and relationships in games, and we answer the question: Can Daniel walk on his hands?

You know how, us nerds, when we really love something we kind of feel like we know everything about it and no one else could possibly know more? We’re wrong. We should knock that off.
BUT! BUT!!! Pablo Hidalgo isn’t wrong. Pablo Hidalgo knows more about Star Wars than any of us. It’s his job — officially — as a Lucasfilm creative executive.
Mr. Hidalgo was a guest at the second-ever FanQuest, which just happened in Winnipeg a couple weeks back. I made him answer some very important questions, under threat of bowcaster. Questions like: how do you kill a Jedi?
