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!
We’ve got heaps of steam with Steam OS, Steam Machines and the Steam Controller! We also become obsessed with the most subtle of games Bear Town. Beyond: Two Souls demo impressions, Worms 3, GTA V, the future of game streaming and SO MUCH MORE!

At PAXAUS 2013, we had the pleasure of using the noisy media room to catch up with Ron Gilbert in person. You don’t get to meet him in the flesh, you just get to hear him again, but pretty awesome for us, right? We follow up on our Monkey Island/Bioshock Infinite/Lost cross over theory, discuss the role of Kickstarter, potential issues with Oculus Rift and raiding in World of Warcraft. Oh, and rum. Listen to our previous interview with Ron here.
In this episode here the boys discuss, topics, subjects and themes. Be marvelled by their tone and varied articulation while falling in love with some of the things they say, while truth be told hating other ideas they express.
Also our final entry (for now) into our Black Mesa Gameclub. Next game: Dreamweb (Free from ScummVM)
