Episode 160: TFAL talks The Girl Who Sees with Pattie Umali


It’s no secret that TFAL Producer Mike and Elaine love a good video game from Animal Crossing to Uncharted to Final Fantasy.  Role Playing Games (RPG) are a favorite pastime. If only there was a Filipino inspired one we could explore? Well turns out there is! 

In this episode the crew shares their experiences with video games and speaks with Patti Umali, creator of The Girl Who Sees, a video game set in World War II Philippines. The game is a point-and-click adventure and turn-based RPG hybrid that explores WWII history and Philippine fantasy. Players learn about Philippine folklore and mythology, while the game also shares history and Tagalog language lessons.
