CW/TW: Since this is a space where we hold our pain as well as our joy, we just wanted to note that Spencer takes a moment [3:44 - 9:49] to share some feelings about the recent rise of anti-Asian violence in America, which may be triggering for some. Thanks for being here with us. On a lighter note, Spencer concludes Firewatch (no spoilers) despite being too gay to read a map, and Jamie breaks down the recently released folksy narrative card game, Signs of the Sojourner, where encounters are conversations instead of combat. Also, our incredible Episode 9 guest Sisi Jiang contributed to the narrative design of this game! Omg! If you've made it this far with us, you know we firmly believe video games are art. Our guest this week, Lexington, Kentucky-based alternative controls designer and Unwinnable editor Amanda Hudgins (they/them), enthusiastically agrees. When they're not pushing the boundaries of the physical forms video games can take and wow-ing crowds at museums and galleries, their day job is at SuperSoul, an indie game studio. We love how Amanda approaches games as a highly tactile experience, and we hope it will TOUCH you as much as it did us.

Note: Major plot spoilers for 13 Sentinels: Aegis Rim from 38:15 to 50:00. We recently hit 10k downloads - thank you so much! This week, Jamie concludes her journey with the sprawling, 2019 sci-fi epic 13 Sentinels: Aegis Rim - and you know we have some insights to excavate together! Meanwhile, Spencer's started the spooky walking simulator Firewatch; we muse over its themes of isolation, grief, and emotional trauma as an appropriate parallel to our current reality as we come upon the anniversary of the coronavirus pandemic. Then we're joined by Janet Garcia (Gameonysus, Game Industry Guides), a game critic, content creator, Twitch streamer, podcaster, Youtuber, and former IGN Guides editor! We go IN on the somewhat-surreal shared fever dream we call Super Mario 64, binge-watching our favorite comfort shows, glowing up, and so much more. As our eponymous plumber would say, LET'S-A GO!

We got tea to spill this week! Turns out Troy Leavitt, the lead developer of Hogwarts Legacy (an upcoming open-world Harry Potter RPG), is a far-right conspiracy theorist with the YouTube receipts to prove it. And this is on top of JK Rowling already outing herself as a TERF (trans-exclusionary radical feminist), which makes things complicated for her queer and trans fans to contend with. Yikes! Meanwhile, Pokemon turns 25 this year with some exciting announcements for Nintendo fans. Spencer and Jamie break it down for you with some of our own hot takes and muse on the complexities of engaging with popular media when you're a member of one or more marginalized groups.  Then we're joined by the whip-smart and incisively funny Alex Korabelnikova, a narrative designer and co-founder of EggNut, a fully decentralized indie game studio. Their upcoming game Backbone, a Noir roleplaying adventure about a raccoon detective in a dystopian Vancouver, absolutely CANNOT be missed. We get into Disco Elysium, Planescape Torment, and what it means to be a person.

Y'all been hitting that pandemic wall lately? Us too. Spencer's coping by working through half the Assassin's Creed series, which just HAPPENED to be super on sale in the Playstation Store, and getting elbow-deep in the lore. Meanwhile, Jamie's cleansing her palate from 200+ hours of Persona 5 with Aegis Rim: 13 Sentinels, a reality-altering JRPG starring high schoolers jumping into another reality for turn-based fights-- wait a minute. Here's a follow-up article on the Ubisoft diversity debacle Jamie mentioned from 2020: https://kotaku.com/head-of-ubisoft-announces-plans-to-shakeup-the-company-1844252024 Then we're joined by Jamiere Leslie, a counselor based in Massachusetts's south shore who's rediscovered her love of gaming during the pandemic. How can you tell if you have a gaming addiction? Can Animal Crossing cure depression? What's the deal with therapy? All this and more awaits you.

We're joined by Keridwen Luis (she/her) and Jude McLaughlin (they/them) this week, a queer power couple who share decades of experience making games, running games, teaching on the intersections of queer theory and fandom, writing Lambda Literary Award-nominated science fiction and fantasy, and still managing to find time to sit with us and chat about fandoms, queer bodies, representation, and how Final Fantasy VII is basically a microcosm of their relationship's early years. Meanwhile, Spencer breaks down the whole GameStop situation that's been all over the news this week and talks about a new multiplayer game they've been playing called Knights & Bikes, while Jamie shares the view from the top of the mountain of completing Persona 5: Royal.

We're joined by Danielle Brathwaite Shirley (they/she) this week, a game maker and artist living and working in London. Danielle creates work that seeks to archive the Black Trans experience. In Danielle's words: I USE TECHNOLOGY TO IMAGINE OUR LIVES IN ENVIRONMENTS THAT CENTRE OUR BODIES...THOSE LIVING, THOSE THAT HAVE PASSED AND THOSE THAT HAVE BEEN FORGOTTEN. We were thrilled to share space with them, discussing their games THE BLACK TRANS ARCHIVE and RESURRECTION LANDS, Afrofuturism, trans tourism, and Blade. Meanwhile, Spencer wants to know if we really need Uncharted to be a TV show and Indiana Jones to be a game when we could tell stories about literally anything else, and Jamie introduces a brand-new segment!

We kick off the new year with CelesMeh, a queer Latina scientist who edits genes and builds robots by day, streams games on Twitch with an emphasis on mental health and self-care by night, and is an all-around badass and delight 24/7! Celes joins us for an energizing conversation on the power of games to help us overcome our inner challenges and see our own resilience. Please note: This episode contains frank discussions of mental illness, including depression and suicide. Meanwhile, Spencer claims Assassin's Creed: Valhalla for the queer community, and Jamie explains how Persona 5: Royal dashed all of her big plans to finally tackle her gaming backlog over the holiday break.

As we collectively drag ourselves towards the 2020 finish line while tempering our expectations for 2021, we're taking a break from guest interviews this week to bring you a special end of year episode! Join us as we share our completely unofficial picks for this year's Pixel Therapy Game Awards (cue applause). From Jamie's nomination for Best NPC Hugs to Spencer's pick for Game That Lived Rent-Free in My Head, we promise there's a little something for everyone. Finally, it wouldn't be Pixel Therapy without crying. So please allow us to take a moment to share our reflections on this podcast's first 90 days (That's it?!), and how thankful we are for all of the love, support, and energy we've received from all of you.

This week we're joined by game engineer, narrative designer, and journalist Sisi Jiang (they/them)! Their work is known for covering themes of queerness and orientalism, and their critically-acclaimed game LIONKILLER got nominated for the Independent Game Festival's Excellence in Narrative award. We talk all about the importance of narrative design-- and tbh, how lots of folks have the wrong idea about narrative. MEANWHILE, your co-hosts dissect the series that has become synonymous with Playstation: GOD OF WAR! From the history of the series, to the lessons it offers on everything from managing one's emotions to parenting as an adult survivor of abuse, there is quite a lot to unpack here. Also, Kratos can get it. Find Sisi Jiang on Twitter: https://www.twitter.com/six6jiang/ Learn more about AbleGamers: https://ablegamers.org/ About Pixel Therapy New episodes drop every other Tuesday.

This week, we're joined by molten glass sculptor and artist Momoko Schafer (she/her)! Momo starred in season 1 of Netflix's glassblowing competition show Blown Away, and also founded Self Love Social Club, a QTBIPOC-led platform for your healing journey! This is definitely Momo's first video game podcast, and we're stoked to have her. We talk about gaming culture through the lens (lol, glass, get it?) of an artist, the growing popularity of Twitch and possibilities in the medium of streaming, mobile gaming, gaming as pop culture, and so much more! Meanwhile, your co-hosts can't wait to tell you about our sparkling new PATREON! We're psyched to build community with you and hope you'll join us. We also read our first LISTENER EMAIL!?!? Also, BUGSNAX. Omg, this is a can't-miss episode.

It's been a rough couple weeks. We hope you're all hanging in there and protecting your space. Recharge and hang with us! This week we're joined by Courtney Craven (they/them), a video games industry accessibility consultant, captioner for Epic Games, and the editor-in-chief of Can I Play That?, the online destination for gamers and developers to find reviews, news stories, and features spotlighting accessibility advocacy within the gaming industry. Courtney shares the frustrating and disturbing personal story of how playing Destiny with their late partner inspired them to break into the video game accessibility industry, and Spencer freaks out a little bit over having the chance to vent about Tell Me Why with another trans person. (It gets a little spicy.) We LOVED having time with Courtney and we think you will too!

This week, we're joined by Black queer YouTuber, musician, model, and artist Mars Dixon (they/she/he), who streams games everywhere as @wii_gay from Twitch to PornHub (you read that right), builds computers for trans people, believes in making gaming content more accessible to non-gamers, and is an absolute ray of gay light. Mars shares how The Sims gave them a place to visualize a queer future, and provided sanctuary and validation during a rough childhood. Then, we dive into the story of a queer game developer, Patrick J. Barrett III, who pretty much accidentally made The Sims gay and changed the landscape of gaming forever. It's a powerful reminder of how queer people have always existed and have always contributed to the creation of culture--and we will persevere! Also, your co-hosts do a bit of a deep dive on our experiences playing Spiritfarer and its impact on our relationships to death and our mental health journeys. Heads up: This episode contains story spoilers for Spiritfarer (20:45 - 37:30) and The Haunting of Bly Manor (29:40 - 37:30).

Norio is best boy in Ghost of Tsushima, and we refuse to hear otherwise. Just like Norio, actor, director, fight choreographer, and dreamer Earl T. Kim is an absolute cinnamon roll, and we are overjoyed to have him on the podcast! We chat about queer fat Asian representation, the NUANCE in Jin Sakai's and Norio's relationship, and the parallels Earl found to Norio's story in his own life, from his real-life friendship with Jin's motion capture/voiceover actor Daisuke Tsuji, to his own painful lessons in letting go. Then, we go IN on the lasting impact of Final Fantasy Tactics, which literally makes Earl cry just talking about it. Also, your co-hosts checked out Ghost of Tsushima: Legends and New Game+, which is kind of ironic since we just spent an episode talking about how we never play multiplayer... let's just say Sucker Punch certainly changed that! Find Earl on Twitter https://twitter.com/earlofsammich?s=20 (@earlofsammich) and check out Earl and Daisuke's new Twitch channel, https://www.twitch.tv/team/dandesaga (DandE Saga)!

Welcome to Co-Op Mode, a whole new segment from your Pixel Therapy Pod co-hosts, Spencer (they/them) and Jamie (she/her). In this one-on-one bonus episode, get to know your co-hosts a little better as we dive deep into a specific topic around why we game and how we relate to gaming. This week, we answer two questions: Why do we both tend to avoid multiplayer? And what do we look for in a video game?

Y'all, your co-hosts have just returned from a long night on the Zero -- Kentucky Route Zero, that is! Spencer and Jamie do a little review and excavation of our emotions about this beautiful, haunting, and painfully real series from the folks at cardboard computer that culminated earlier this year after a 7-year journey. This is a generation-defining game that truly defies the bounds of the medium. It's a story about people; but it's also about all of us. It's a masterpiece, and we can't wait to tell you about it (or at least try). Then, we are certifiably BLESSED to have Jamila Bradley (they/them/theirs) in the studio with us, where we discuss the role of gaming in understanding one's place in the world, as well as how Final Fantasy X taught Jamila how to build resilience in themself -- and awakened some other things in them, too! Other topics discussed: Gaming as self-care, Tomb Raider hot takes, learning a little something about yourself, that empath life, badass women, wishing Spira was real, applying the sphere grid to real life, getting through childhood, moving through the systems around us, inclusive design, dreaming about the future, and also like, what is real? About Jamila Jamila Bradley is a non-binary icon! In Massachusetts, they co-authored the State Plan to End Youth Homelessness, and designed critical research initiatives on marginalized youth experiencing homelessness. Jamila has spent YEARS lifting up LGBTQIA+ youth, and as a political and community organizer they have developed language for rallies, protests, and demonstrations together with trans, indigenous, and immigrant activist groups. Oh, you thought that was it? Jamila is also a fragrance artist and an olfactive anthropologist, currently based in Italy where they're exploring the art of fragrance to tell human stories!

ZombaeKillz, rising Twitch streamer star, joins the Pixel Therapy podcast to talk Blacktivism, invisible disabilities, parenting, and her video game history. Then, she shares how ARK: Survival Evolved taught her how video games could help her manage and overcome chronic pain-- and how she built an inclusive community of gamers on Discord that continues to grow and push back against the "overwhelming monolith of whiteness" that Black folks, non-Black POC, queer and transgender folks, and the disabled and chronically ill community often experience when trying to break into the video gaming industry. Other topics covered: what's it mean when streamers say 'no politics?', gaming with kids, privilege, dealing with racists sliding into your DMs, being on 75 Discord servers, survival games, poop management, paying it forward with love, self-care, living with lupus, moving through grief, lifting each other up, the Black Lives Matter movement. About ZombaeKillz: ZombaeKillz is a variety streamer, activist, BLERD and swear word extraordinaire.

Get cozy, Pixel Therapy is now in session! In this introductory episode, Spencer (they/them) and Jamie (she/her) discuss what Pixel Therapy means to us and what our goals are for the podcast.

Launching Sep 22, 2020, Pixel Therapy Pod is a podcast about the emotional connections we form with video games. We believe that video games can serve as tools for understanding ourselves, each other, and the world around us— and we want to celebrate gaming in its many contexts: as a hobby; as an art form; as therapy. Every episode, hosts Spencer (they/them) and Jamie (she/her) invite a guest from inside (or completely unrelated to) the gaming industry to chat about their relationship to gaming, how gaming connects and interacts with their identities, and how a specific game has influenced their life in a meaningful way. The show focuses on people who have historically been underrepresented or invisible in the industry, centering the experiences of QT/+POC folks and challenging conventional notions of what it means to be a gamer— and who gets to call themselves one. New episodes drop every other week on Tuesdays. Learn more at https://pixeltherapypod.com (pixeltherapypod.com) or follow us on social media @pixeltherapypod.
