Copycat: another PAX Australia 2023 game

This is a Dark Matter Zine podcast and I’m your host Nalini Haynes. DMZ welcomes Sam and Kostia from Spoonful of Wonder to talk about their PAX award-winning game Copycat.

Dark Matter Zine Acknowledges this recording is taking place on the unceded Country of the Bunurong Peoples’ of the Kulin Nation as Traditional Owners and Custodians of this Country. I pay my respects to their Elders past, present and emerging.

Introducing Copycat creators

Sam and Kostia are a Kiwi and a Ukrainian, first-time game makers and full-time creatives who happily hold the titles of innovators, articulators and mischief-makers.

PAX says:

Copycat by NSW’s Spoonful of Wonder is a beautiful, narrative game about rejection, belonging and the meaning of home. The game sees a newly-adopted shelter cat become the victim of an elaborate plan when a jealous, stray copycat steals her place in the house. The game follows our heroine cat as she searches for a real family and cherishes the human-pet bond.

Thanks

Thank you to today’s guests, Sam and Kostia from Spoonful of Wonder, creators of Copycat! This was a Dark Matter Zine podcast and I’m your host Nalini Haynes. Thank you for listening, stay safe and have fun.

Acknowledgement of Country

Dark Matter Zine Acknowledges this recording is taking place on the unceded Country of the Bunurong Peoples’ of the Kulin Nation as Traditional Owners and Custodians of this Country. I pay my respects to their Elders past, present and emerging.

(I have occasionally acknowledged Country in podcasts. This year I aim to lift my game in many areas, so I plan to Acknowledge Country in every podcast. An Acknowledgement of Traditional Owners can be done by anyone. It’s a way of showing awareness of, and respect for, the Aboriginal Traditional Owners of the land where a meeting or event is held. For more information about Country and respect for Australia’s First Nations, read this post that also has links to useful websites.)
