It’s a musical episode this week, as Dylan and Will talk music in game dev and sample some memorable tracks from games past, from Jerry Martin’s “Under Construction” for The Sims to Jessica Curry’s “I Have Begun My Ascent” for Dear Esther to Hirokazu Tanaka’s Super Mario Land Muda theme. We also forget how to pronounce Bosca Ceoil.
Will tries out Pico 8 for himself after Sam’s recommendation last episode, so he talks about making games and playing games on the fantasy console.
We also discuss what an Apocalypse Now game might look like, take a Pootie Tang joke a little too far, and determine that neither Andrew Lloyd Webber nor Henry David Thoreau designed Falling Water.
Games include The Last of Us: Remastered, Fire Emblem Heroes, Hug Arena, Matchy Matchy, and Super Mario Land.
