#166: John Harper

Description
Dirk and Kathryn are joined this week by designer John Harper, the mind behind Blades in the Dark. John’s transition to full-time developer has been helped by his fans that support him via Kickstarter and Patreon – this following allows him to fully concentrate on his multi-disciplinary craft and continue to release free, hackable material.
