The Dark Crystal: Age of Resistance is now on Netflix and building out Kim Henson's lore and world of Thra that began in in 1982. Now, the Dallas-based developer Bonus XP, who also brought us Stranger Things: The Game, and publisher En Masse Entertainment are bringing that world to consoles, PC, and Mac with The Dark Crystal: Age of Resistance Tactics.

At PAX West 2019, we got the chance to sit down with David Pottinger, President of Bonus XP and lead developer on The Dark Crystal Age of Resistance Tactics and dig into why the turn-based strategy game-type was chosen for Thra, the character designs, and how they balanced the world. Announced at E3, the game offers fans the opportunity to experience the fantasy world of Thra by playing through–and going beyond–the events of the Netflix Original series.
