A Whiskey for the End of the Worm, Part 5

A Whiskey for the End of the Worm, Part 5

Struggling for sanity, we put together another installment of our virus lockdown series.

In this one we answer the question, which five non-GMT titles should’ve been developed and published by GMT? There might be something about someone getting drunk as well.

Hopefully this will distract you for a little while.

Episode 146 — A Sideways Look in the Rearview Mirror

Here it be.

Our annual look back. Our listaganza. The episode where we talk all about the best games, whiskies, and albums we encountered the previous year. You ask for it and we provide it. Or, maybe you don’t ask for it, but here it is anyway.

So take a listen and see if we are remotely close to where last year took you.

Episode 116 — The 2017 Essen Session With Heavy Cardboard

Episode 116 — The 2017 Essen Session With Heavy Cardboard

Welcome to our annual get-together with the fine folks over at Heavy Cardboard. It takes us a while to get into the meat of the episode as our planned 15 minute intro turned into an easygoing conversation with some unexpected insights into the thoughts and feelings behind these endeavors.

So, this is an epic show, a way-too-many-games discussed show, and some might argue a way-too-long show. But when you’re having a good time, time flies, and we thoroughly enjoyed this session. We hope you concur.
