Special guest Mike Odum of Root 76 drops by to talk about a litany of topics with Dylan, Sam, and Will.

We discuss the Arcane Kids’ breadth of work, Summer Games Done Quick and the world of speedrunning, the SNES Classic announcement and the state of emulation, designing a PS Vita 2, and the mystery surrounding the new Braindeer Games Twitter account.

But a big topic for this week revolves around the postmortems about the lackluster releases of Tumbleseed and Scanner Sombre, spurring the op-eds “Your Indie Game Will Flop and You Will Lose Money” by Cliff Harris and “Lol we’re all poor” by Robert Yang.

Games include Life is Strange, Fire Emblem Heroes, Puyo Puyo Tetris, Super Bomberman R, Jackbox Party Pack 3, PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds, and Akinator the Genie.
