A comedy game design podcast by two guys who know nothing about comedy nor game design.
Join Trevor Scott and Ben Slinger as they take prompts from random word generators, movies, game titles and more and turn them into occasionally hilarious but always interesting game designs.
226: Skin Substitute
With their old random word generator back online, Ben and Trevor take you down a magical pathway of improvised game designs, such as:
A simulated world of Besties and Reverse Besties as you jump between characters struggling to make ends meet,
A caretaker of a colony ship automating systems and programming mutating robots,
A necromancy student disillusioned with academia and searching for the true Necronomicon,
225: Wizard Drugs and Raves
An open world investigation game based on the movie Slither, a ghost befriends 4 young kids at the Overlook Hotel, a horror movie based VR fitness game and the adventures of a young dropout wizard going to raves and the dangers of magical drugs. All these ideas and more are wildly thrown about and then discarded like they were nothing in this weeks episode.
224: Neoprene Cowboy
With random prompts brought to you by What3Words.com, find yourself swept away into imaginary games such as:
A hamster who finds an ancient device that lets them roll around
A kart racer with food-based car construction and our patented Bestie™ system
A western set in the climate drowned future
An AR collectible version of the classic DS game Elite Beat Agents
223: Ladybug and the Huntsman
Creating a space station so large it creates the look of a new constellation on Earth, First person base building on an alien planet (with a heavy focus on waste water), air currents as a game mechanic and ladybugs become the worlds greatest delicacy.
Some high concept ideas this week as Ben and Trevor invent games where you play through the fantastical ideas of your grandfather via their cassette tapes, explore a water-covered version of New York, live out your life during the slowest battle ever, plant things on the moon, and more!
221: Spade Manor
Cthulhu-esque goings on at the Bed, Bath and Beyond, the secret of the man in the moon, agents of H.I.V.E. and a classist system of Gravediggers are actively protecting London from a zombie outbreak. Trev and Ben laugh their way through yet another wild edition of What Three Words.
