The “Greatest Podcast” is now available for the next generation of gaming, according to The Verge.
The podcast is the brainchild of Tim Schafer and Ryan McCaffrey.
It features a diverse cast of guests including Tim Schaffer, the author of the bestselling and critically acclaimed The Witness, as well as many of gaming’s biggest names.
The Verge describes the show as “an inside look at what it’s like to be the greatest game designer of all time.”
“We’re going to get to work building a podcast for a new generation of gamers,” McCaffery said in a press release.
“We’re also bringing you a brand new podcast from one of gaming history’s most famous and revered names: Tim Schaf.”
According to The Wall Street Journal, Schafer is the co-creator of the first-person shooter video game Halo and also co-wrote the first installment of the video game franchise BioShock.
In addition to being the creator of the Halo franchise, Schaf also served as a producer on BioShock Infinite.
McCaffee is the producer and director of The Witness and is also the author and co-writer of the novel.
Tim Schafer, who co-founded BioShock with fellow game designer and Halo co-creative genius Ken Levine, is now working on a new podcast, which is a direct adaptation of his novel, The Witness.
According to McCaffe, “The Witness is a story of a young man named Daniel, who is sent to a remote planet by a mysterious and powerful being called The Witness in the hopes that he will find a way to help it overcome its past.
In The Witness we follow Daniel’s journey to find out if The Witness is capable of surviving the harsh conditions it’s in.”
McCombrey is currently writing a new show, titled “The Greatest Show of All Time.”
It is slated to debut on August 5.
McCombery and Schafer are not the only game developers to have worked on a podcast.
A similar podcast, called “Podcast of the Week,” has also been created for gamers.
