Given recent events, The Brave Room is back to tackle crunch with Tik Tok sensation and UI/UX designer Anisa Sanusi. This week, we talk about Crunch – specifically how it relates as a more industry-level problem.
Admittedly, it’s a pretty serious topic, so there’s not as many wacky hijinks this week. Instead of the usual trying to find some cartoonishly exaggerated way of describing the episode , we talk a bit about how there really is no singular big bad causing all this to happen. It’s an industry-level problem, and that means no one studio is capable of making the change all on their own.
Still, if you like hearing two young adults griping about capitalism and the tackiness of bad employee care, make sure to give this one a listen. There’s a lot more to crunch than just burned out employees, and Anisa Sanusi gives us her best shot at explaining the messiness of a system built to get as much labor out of people for as little as possible.
The Brave Room is Gamerbraves’ own podcast, hosted by “Wan” Amirul Adlan where we talk about industry level news and the occasional dip into topics like anime and the downfall of society as a result of late-stage capitalism. It’s available to listen to on Anchor, Spotify as well as YouTube
