In this week's special GDC 2014 episode, we recorded from Tyler's kitchen in downtown San Francisco with two groups of game developer guests who hiked over from GDC. First up, hear from Xaviant design director Tim Lindsey, whose resume also includes CCP, Bethesda, and Hi-Rez; Twinbeard Studios founder and Frog Fractions creator Jim Crawford; and Mode 7 Games' Ian Hardingham, who designed and programmed Frozen Synapse and is now working on Frozen Endzone.

Lichdom's announcement took place during AMD's GPU '14 Tech Day, hence this trailer being full of graphical effects and particle pretties. It's a CryEngine 3 powered RPG, which looks a bit like what you might get if you took The Elder Scrolls series and forced it to focus on doing one thing really well. In Lichdom's case, that thing is magic. Cue fire, explosions and arcing shafts of light.
