On Saturday, July 27th hillarious comedians Adam Conover and Ron Funches interviewed Ubisoft’s creative director Jean Guesdon about his work on the Assassin’s Creed franchise as part of Conover’s Humans Who Makes Games podcast. This hour of video game comedy was an absolutely informative delight!

Conover hosted the podcast with great charisma and expertise. Funches was the first guest on the show, discussing his favorite childhood games with Conover. It was heartwarming to hear Funches talk about introducing his 16 year old son to the Metal Slug series. Conover and Funches also discussed the obstacles comedians face when trying to play video games while on tour before discussing the different reasons that people play games. Funches is an excellent podcast co-host and with great insight. I’ll be looking forward to his upcoming Top 10 Games of 2019 list!

Conover and Funches then invited Jean Guesdon onto the podcast. They interviewed him about his career and motivations behind the designs of the Assassin’s Creed series. Funches and Guesdon bonded over their love of pong. It was so fascinating to hear about Guesdon’s background in toy design and how working at Mega Bloks prepared him to work in the video game industry. Guesdon injects his love of history into each Assassin’s Creed game and it was wonderful to learn about the series’ innovative Discovery Tour Mode - turning the games into a virtual museum for players to explore. Guesdon’s talent and hardwork are incredibly inspiring and it was exciting to hear Conover interview a AAA developer for the first time.

Adam Conover doesn’t ruin anything - he elevates all of the projects that he works on! It was such a privilege to hear Conover, Funches and Guesdon talk about their craft. The three of them stand out in their fields because of their incredible talent and ingenuity. I am so excited to see what the future has in store for them.
