Minisode 05 – Text Games, Far Away Places

We have a new minisode of the Critical Distance Confab.

These minisodes are a chance for me and a guest co-host to highlight some games that have gotten virtually no criticism written about them. This is our chance to correct that. They can be anything. art games, prestige level indie games, all the way to AAA games that might have slipped between the cracks. Though generally they will skew a little smaller.

Joining me this month is Critical Distance’s own senior curator and my boss, Kris Ligman.
