Ben and Trevor welcome Andrew Freeth to the podcast and they come up with a number of interesting games including, Giants flinging humans around a battlefield, a typing game where you write a kickstarter press release and an erotic novel at the same time, a dark souls-esque romp through history and we reimagine what Brief Battles would be if Ben and Trevor had anything to do with it.
Andrew Freeth joined us live from South Australia to give us the details on his new game Brief Battles. Brief Battles is studio Juicy Cupcake's first shot at a commercial release, featuring a cast of quirky characters with even quirkier power doing battle over a number of interactive 2D battle ground.
We look into gaming history, specifically how StarCraft has gripped its dedicated community for the better half of two decades. With an HD remake of the classic version recently announced we try to figure out just how this RTS had stayed in vogue when so many other games have faded away into the digital annals of time.
Lastly we’ll be talking about an idea we have dubbed the “exclusivity effect”. Inspired a post by reddit user Commodore256 we try to analyse the effect that platform exclusive titles have on the people that faithfully buy into the likes Halo and Zelda Breath of the Wild. Mitch definitely had some thoughts about his PS4 and Horizon Zero Dawn.
