This week: choose the upgrade path of your vicious Australian marsupial, become the keeper of the World Clock, team up with other scientists and unravel a conspiracy, help the spirit that has possessed your non-dominant hand, and see what happens when Mrs Clause has her moment and takes her rightful place as head of the North Pole.

Ben and Trevor go back to the Harry Potter well in a game played within the margins of a Potions spell book, get serious with a game about a man down on his luck and on the streets, do some deep world building in which a technology can tell you how long you have left to live, reveal what really happened to the Hindenburg, and more!


087: Game Paste

A VR puzzle game inspired by the Fools Errand, a momentum based game in which you must stop a lodge from crashing into an orphanage, a calm casual driving experience game with a secret locked in the trunk. These are just some of the crazy games that Ben and Trevor discussed this week.


086: Minecraft (but for spiders)

082: Workplace Tag

Delivering script pages via parkour, playing a high stakes game of Tag in the office, Spy Party-esque multiplayer in an exam room, the long sordid tale of a single chapstick, cartoon physics as gameplay mechanics, and the infinite path of an actor's life - all this and more in Bit Storm this week!

A narrative game based on a boxer that bets on his own fights, a used car salesman simulator, the secret origin of language on earth, a telepathic alien baby breaks out of area 52 and a family fighting to survive in Feudal England.
