Minisode 09 – Long Games and Short Games

Abstract image evoking bird silhouette

New year, new games to discuss on the Critical Distance Confab.

With the minisodes, every month, both I and a co-host, go back and forth listing off a game we think hasn’t gotten the critical attention it deserves until we’ve each done three. The hope being that some of you listening will take the initiative and fix that oversight. These games can be from anywhere. art games, prestige level indie games or even AAA games that fell through the cracks for whatever reason.

Co-hosting with me this month is lecturer and critic, Professor Todd Harper.
