At Gen Con 2014 I had the chance to sit down with Sean Brown and chat about Spurs and Alien Uprising.  Spurs is a do it all kind of Western game.  While Alien Uprising is all about crashing on the wrong planet.  This interview was a lot of fun, a lot of wierd things happen during it that distract us.
