Hello, foreign people,
In this episode I talk about gaming with Kyle from South Korea. We talk about Kyle’s language teaching game Magicians, and about the Korean gaming scene beyond Starcraft and MMORPGs.
Kyle wrote some very comprehensive shownotes, I have posted them below.
I det här avsnittet gästas jag av Kyle som bor i Sydkorea. Vi pratar om hans spel Magicians, skrivet för att lära ut språk, och om koreansk spelkultur bortom Starcraft och MMORGP.
Kyle skrev ihop väldigt fina shownotes åt mig, jag postar dem i sin helhet nedan.
Thanks for having me on the show again, it was a lot of fun. Hopefully it comes out well, I thought I’d arrange all the links for the stuff we talked about before I forget!
The two games I thought were Korean but turned out to Norwegian:

Some popular games in Korea:
GURPS (only published RPG book in Korea), D&D (all versions), White Wolf are the big ones and people usually use the English books, take the system and play in their own homebrew worlds.
Age of Shadow (fan translated)
Free Fate/ Strands of Fate (fan translated)
Usually just using the English books:
Mutants and Masterminds

I think that’s everything! Let me know if you need anything else. Thanks again!
