Decades after movies like The Thing and The Blob, why does the body horror genre still fascinate fans? Even better, how do you translate the experience of being a ravenous, sentient ball of spaghetti and meatballs into a video game? Krzysztof Chomicki, game and level designer on Carrion, is here to tell us how he and the team at Phobia Game Studios designed a "reverse-horror" game where YOU are the monster. Joe and Krzysztof dive into the roots of body and cosmic horror, why the Polish have such a dark sense of humor, and the development of Carrion from idea to a massively fun metroidvania game. Carrion is out now on PC, Switch, and Game Pass. Follow The 1099: @ The1099Podcast Follow Joe: @ JosephKnoop Support our musician: ZWbuckley.com
