Technical Note: We were trying out a new mic this week and it was possessed. We apologize for any crackles and pops. We did the best we could to edit them out.
The episode where we talk about indie games. Are they agents of change and site of innovation or just vehicles for Angry Bird clones? We talk about games like Bastion (of course), Trauma, Runespell: Overture, and Unpleasant Horse.

    I’m biased in favor of Trauma, both as a tester and as a friend of Krystian (the creator), but I liked the game. It really isn’t much more than it was described on the podcast, except for the gestural interface.

    For what it’s worth, you can play it for free on Krystian’s site, (traumagame.com).
