And the month of three smaller episodes instead of one big episode and one smaller episodes comes to a close. How’d it go? I’m not sure myself. It was a bit of a mad dash to get all of these episodes out, and while I definitely like shining light on smaller titles and having a broader set of games to discuss it also feels like I didn’t get to dig into the meat of any of it. All three games could have conceivably been turned into a full length episode if I’d had more time to meditate on them a bit. Instead this was very go-go-go. Still, it was a neat experiment. Maybe I’ll make it a recurring thing in September to cover small titles I’ve missed throughout the previous year? We’ll see. I still have stuff I’ve been meaning to talk about – Cart Life, Shelter, etc – but maybe it’s better to have material stored up for slow months.
Anyways, here’s the YouTube link if you’re so inclined to watch there. Script’s below the cut.
So in the interests of furthering the agenda of artsy, feely, totally non-objective weirdo games writing in the wake The Hashtag That Shall Not Be Named, I decided that I was going to make a virtual mixtape. Are virtual mixtapes a thing? Whatever, I’m making it a thing. It’s different than a playlist because this assortment of songs is hand-collected and hand-pasted into a single WordPress page with love. We’re talking artisanal, cave-aged, free-range music compilations, not those music compilations you get out of a can from a factory.
