In January 2010, Donald Mustard was sitting on his couch when he made a decision that would change his life, the course of his company and send him on a collision course with Star Wars: The Force Awakens director J.J. Abrams. And it was kind of an accident.

So begins Polygon's latest feature, "How Shadow Complex led Chair to Infinity Blade, to Star Wars, to J.J. Abrams and back again." You can read it on Polygon, of course. You can also listen to it in the latest episode of Polygon Longform below.


We launched Polygon Longform in early September, and the podcast is already packed with hours worth of content. Visit Polygon Longform on SoundCloud, and you can play every episode instantly. Subscribe there, in iTunes or by pasting the RSS feed URL into your favorite podcast player, and you'll have access to the full back catalog of free audio entertainment. Links to each of those options are available in the buttons above.

If you'd like to browse Polygon Longform's episodes on the site, we've got a Longform hub just for you, too. Before you go, be sure to check out our other podcasts, including Minimap, our daily news show; Quality Control, in which Polygon editor-at-large Justin McElroy talks to a critic after they review a new game and allows them to add a little bit of extra context and insight; and Wireframe, audio productions centered on in-depth discussions with the creative people who make things we love.
