Episode 1 -- Rungunjumpgun


As has been long promised, there's something new for long-suffering patrons -- a daily podcast! Now, in the interest of wide-spread focus, you'll have to share some of this, but there will be public podcasts like this one and patron-only podcasts as well, available for every patron -- even if you're just giving a dollar! 

These are daily, 10-20 minute meditations on the work I've been playing with audio clips from the games themselves. Credit will always be given.

Today we're talking about the addictive RunGunJumpGun, and the nature of mechanics mixed with narrative. I hope you enjoy, and definitely enjoy the music, composed by Jordan David Bloeman, from the aforementioned RunGunJumpGun, sampled from the track "Eclipses Belt".
