In this suspenseful episode of the Popzara Podcast our own Cory Galliher interrogates writer/director Sam Barlow, creator of narrative games where you simply don’t run around shooting people, about his latest project, the surprisingly great full-motion video (FMV) mystery thriller Her Story.

Unsurprisingly, Sam talks about the challenges of bringing a compelling female-centric narrative to an industry lacking such things, as well as games that don’t really involve shooting people, including his own Silent Hill: Shattered Memories, an entry in Konami’s survival-horror series with no combat whatsoever.

If you’re craving a tantalizing sample of alternative gaming that isn’t all blood and guts, you don’t wanna miss out on this one. And if you manage to survive…tell your friends!
