For our live show this week, we caught up after my sunburn incident to talk about the meltdown of Blizzard over the recent Hong Kong incident. For our second topic, we talked about the use of secondary systems in videogames
Covering games through Game-Wisdom has put me in a unique position compared to other people when it comes to games journalism. I don’t normally seek out AAA or mainstream games to play, but I’m always happy to dive into the wonderful weird world of indie titles. Therefore, indie games tend to dominate my best-of lists each year.
But most people don’t pay attention to the indie space, and why they do, they become so fixated on a particular game that it blinds them to the rest of the market, and why I want to talk about the problems with having “indie darlings.”
For this cast, I spoke with returning guest Ramin Shokrizade for a discussion about pricing videogames. We talked about the problem with setting a fair price for a game, why games may be too cheap, and if there are any ways to turn it around.
Children of Morta has been in development for over four years after a successful kickstarter, and from the very first minute of play, the game is an amazing sight to behold. Another great example of a game that is greater than the sum of its parts, I just wish there were more “rogue” in this roguelite.
