Episode 37: "If you're forced to have combat, it's taking away your agency" with @RS_Benedict


We're lucky to have @RS_Benedict on the show to talk about pacifism in gaming, as well as player agency, game development, and choice. And you'll want to hear about their upcoming novel as well!

Music this week is "The Woods and the Goddess" from the Deadly Premonition OST and Undyne's Theme from Undertale, composed by Toby Fox. As always, if you'd like to hear more from RS, check out the patreon at
