Responsible for the inception and writing of dark fantasy roleplaying game Red Giant: A Cursed World, Cory Burns is an immensely busy individual steeped in the creation of frightening worlds full of inhuman horrors and mind bending magic. It’s not an easy job, bringing something as all-consuming and immersive as a whole TTRPG setting to life, it’s more closely aligned to a vocation. A calling. One Cory has answered and risen to the challenge of, creating a game players and truly lose themselves in and tell stories of triumph and tragedy, heroism and horror.
I was incredibly fortunate to be given the opportunity to pick Cory’s brain on everything from how he managed to conceive Red Giant, his work process, his history and what his vision for the future holds. It was an excellent interview. Cory is an articulate and enlightening individual with a wealth of insight into gaming and the creative process, and I’m very excited to be able to share the experience.
