One Life Left

Definitely the UK's favourite radio show (sort of) about videogames.


Commissioned by London’s award-winning Resonance 104.4 FM in early 2006, One Life Left was only meant to run for six episodes.

Take that, The Man because now, somewhere around one hundred and fifty episodes later, it’s in its seventh season and grown from humbling, terrified, fumbling beginnings into one of the station’s most valued shows.

Take THAT, The Man. Also take that, British radio standards.

One Life Left — Nordic Game 2013 — #001

Play

NG1

Back in May 2013, ailment we went over to the country of Nordic to see their amazing games conference. And also to be taught that there is no such country as Nordic. It could be for this reason that we had to do the first show from a slaughterhouse. And even worse: with Parko.

But don’t despair! We had some good guests on too! Joachim explains his game Flowstorm, Oscar Clark and Chris James drop in too. Ste then goes missing, just as we hear from Petri and Martin about Sexy Hiking and their meditative space strategy game Rymdkapsel.

Tom ‘Cheese Doodles’ Betts tells us about Sir/Madam You Are Being Hunted and how it is best to abbreviate it. Lau from the Copenhagen Games Collective organises us as well as the Indie Gaming Night (and introduces Ann to the game of Spin The Bottle). And we end the show by talking to Emma the COO/Producer/Magician of Nordic Games who reveals the secrets of how to make a great games conference without being kicked out of the magic circle.
