spaaaaaace

MisanthroPlay goes old-old-skool in a look at the history of Space Invaders, from its inception and imitators, to its numerous artistic revivals in honour of the game's 30th anniversary in 2008. We even talk about Cosmo Gang, just because we can.

We Play: Polybius, My Father's Long, Long Legs, Tourist (Owlcave), Vostok Inc., and Dandy Dungeon.

Just a reminder that you've got one more week to send in your letters for Episode #50's mailbag!

#48 Edith Becomes Her

It's another Deep Dive episode as Alva and Robert sift through What Remains of Edith Finch, Giant Sparrow's quirky narrative adventure about a young woman returning home to delve into her family's tragic history. This episode is heavy on spoilers, so you've been warned.

In We Play, Alva stays fresh in Splatoon 2, while Robert slices his way to joy in Severed. We also touch on the first few hours of Pyre and Root Double.

Episode #50 is coming up, so don't forget to send us your letters!

#47 In Exile

Robert introduces Alva to one of his personal favorites: Exile, the existentalist Hashishin action RPG from the mavens at Nippon Telenet, and a criminally unrecognized one at that. Grab your hash, your LSD, and your copy of the Illuminatus!, and get ready for a crisis-of-faith road trip across time and space with Sadler the Sadboi. It's gonna be a bumpy ride that's holy-to-the-MAX.

...and soon we will realize our Cosmic Fantasy.
