Is it a bird? Is it a plane? No, it’s the Good Game Superhero Special.
Join hosts Steven ‘Bajo’ O’Donnell and Stephanie ‘Hex’ Bendixsen as they don their tightest superhero tights to leap tall buildings in a single bound and take a look back at the colourful history of video game superheroes. From Superman on the Atari 2600 to Batman: Arkham City on the Xbox 360, no super game will be left unturned in this very heroic Good Game special.
Bajo and Hex reflect on their own favourite superheroes and hero-themed games, as well as investigate the challenges a game developer faces when turning a well-known and well-loved superhero into a playable videogame character. Some of the world’s best known game developers also discuss the highs and lows of video game heroism, we meet a real-life Aussie superhero, and a whole lot more.
