Episode 40: "Malevolent Magical Realism" w/ Michael Lutz (@warrenisdead)


We welcome Michael Lutz (@warrenisdead) on to talk about his fantastic twine horror piece "My Father's Long, Long Legs", as well as some of the theories and ideas animating some of his other work like "The Uncle That Works At Nintendo" and "Tower of the Bloodlord". We also crack open some serious literary theory to explain the cultural appeal of videogames. It's a journey, man, you'll like it.

Music, as always, by the tremendous @prodigis. For more on him check out his patreon at and for more from Michael, keep an eye on
