Ron Gilbert is back and this time he’s brought along his old friend and collaborator Gary Winnick to talk about their currently crowd funding adventure game “Thimbleweed Park”. Only 60% of the episode is off topic. A new record!
What a sexy episode we have for you all today. James has been getting it on with Contraption Maker and Divekick while Paul has his way with Mount Your Friends. Ben gets sick of sex jokes. There are some fantastic crowd funding projects we chat about the 2DS and games that none of us will ever get to play.
Crowd Funding Picks
James: Octopus City Blues
Paul: Death Road to Canada

We literally have all the Ron you could want.
This week an entire continent gave thanks to us! Bless you Africa! In response we decided to talk about some videogames for once.
GAMECLUB included this episode so I hope everyone got their Dreamweb on. Considering the length of the game we’re going to alter the plan for the next edition and play through the rest of the game.
