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.
What do Veronica Mars, aliens and OCD have in common? They all appeared in some way, shape or form on this episode of Bit Storm. Ben and Trev discuss these ideas and throw them away when they aren't able to come up with anything more to talk about.

A rustpunk VR golf game where you use your putting skills to beat enemies;

356: New Life+
On this week's episode, Ben and Trevor play some video game wall tennis as they come up with improvised game ideas, such as:

A shadow puppetry game played in the context of a rickety stagecoach;
A Daniel Mullins inspired experience where you move up the ranks of angelic tech support;
Ben and Trev forgot to do a Halloween episode earlier, so here is a very last minute version of one. They almost spend the entire episode talking about one game. The games they talked about were:
An airbnb set horror game, where the protagonist lives in the front portion of an airbnb and scary things start happening when someone rents the back room.An adventure FMV game set in a weird alternate universe where everything grows on trees.
354: Grill Goals
Ben and Trevor play some classic Click Pitch, inventing games such as:

A new sporting sensation where you must feed your goalies perfectly cooked burgers;
A marching band simulator;
