Our friend Kunal Majmudar returns along with a friend from the Badlands with some huge news on this episode!
Before Kunie Poo joins us we’ve got some reviews to knock out! Psychonauts in The Rhombus of Ruin is a hilarious first person point and click puzzler from the twisted mind of Tim Schafer and Double Fine Productions. Vaccine is a deliberately old school survival horror game in the vein of PSone era Resident Evil from Rainy Night Creations. Shift Happens is a two player platformer that mixes co-op gameplay and friendly competition from Klonk Games and Deck13.
Jacob Garner reviews Bear With Me Episode 2 from Exordium Games, the next chapter in Amber and Ted’s noir adventure. Pernell Vaughn reviews Chime Sharp from Chilled Mouse, the last generation puzzle classic returns to consoles with new modes and visuals. Hex Martinez reviews the D-movie style stealth horror Bloody Boobs from Eduard Bulashov.
After a quick break, Kunal Majmudar of SWDTech Games joins us to talk about the fact that they’ve been picked up by publisher BadLand Games! And to celebrate, Zander Cumming of BadLand Games is here to talk about the fact that they picked up Pixel Noir!
It’s a very exciting chat covering the history of the game, the various publishers that BadLand had to fight off, the expectations for the title and planned release window, and clearly, how much The SML Podcast had to do with the deal getting signed. Plus we hear a little bit about what else is going on with BadLand and tons more! Congrats to SWDTech!
