Ian Dallas on ‘What Remains of Edith Finch’

Ian Dallas on ‘What Remains of Edith Finch’

Ian Dallas, the creative director of Giant Sparrow, talks about whether Molly starved to death, how he wrote a headline for The Onion that became a self-fulfilling prophecy, and why he wishes he had made an “Edith Finch” level with Weird Al Yankovic.
This is an extended audio version—close to uncut—of Chris’s Rolling Stone interview with Dallas.
