No Cartridge Live: A Conversation with Josh Sawyer

SAT // MAR 09 // 03:00PM

What's the game that made you who are you are?

NO CARTRIDGE LIVE takes this question to the next level, inviting video game industry professionals onstage to play their favorite games and talk about how the creative choices in these games shaped the development of their own work. From explosive personal stories to exploding onscreen gibs, nothing is out of bounds.

Whether you love playing games, talking about games, or talking about playing games, you'll come away with a better understanding of what makes game creators tick.

March's guest is JOSH SAWYER, a video game designer and director.

Prior to working at Obsidian, he was a designer at Black Isle Studios, where he worked on the Icewind Dale series.


NO CARTRIDGE ( is a podcast that attempts to rethink the landscape of video game criticism by considering gaming from a leftist perspective. Hosts Trevor and Olivia talk with people from across the spectrum of the video game world, from designers to marketers to journalists and, most importantly, to fans. We go beyond simple reviews and discussions of mechanical and graphical innovation, providing the opportunity to talk about experiences and politics from a new perspective.
